Atlanta Car Accident Lawyers


Serving All of Georgia


At Montlick and Associates, our Georgia auto accident lawyers have been representing those who suffer serious injury or wrongful death in Georgia car crashes for over thirty years. When people suffer significant injury in a motor vehicle collision, they often endure painful injuries that result in temporary or permanent disability from employment. When you cannot work because you are recuperating, the financial pressure from medical expenses and other bills can be extremely stressful.

When confronting the physical, emotional and financial challenges of coping with a car crash, those injured in motor vehicle collisions must be careful to avoid compromising their legal claim for financial compensation. Some presume that they can deal directly with the insurance adjuster from the negligent driver's insurance company, but insurance adjusters job is to protect the interest of the insurance company, and they do this by paying you as little as possible or nothing at all. The other insurance company will have a team of investigators, experts and attorneys at their disposal whose goals are to find a justification for denying an injury victim's claim or paying the absolute minimum. When a car accident victim attempts to negotiate with insurance company adjusters without legal representation, their personal injury claim can be undermined by damaging statements and strategic mistakes.

  • DUI/DWI
  • Speeding

Seeking Compensation for Full Range of Injuries and Damages in Georgia

The force of impact in any motor vehicle collision can cause severe injury or permanent disability. Although some injuries eventually heal like broken bones, traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), spinal cord injuries and other forms of injury may result in long-term cognitive and physical impairment. Some of the type of injuries which may be experienced by a driver, passenger, motorcyclists, bicyclist or pedestrian in cases that we handle include:

  • Joint injuries of the shoulder or knee
  • Whiplash
  • Head and neck injuries
  • Disfigurement
  • Internal organ damage
  • Decapitation
  • Amputation
  • Spinal cord injuries (paraplegia or quadriplegia)
  • Brain damage impacting cognitive functioning
  • Dislocations and hyper-extensions
  • Wrongful death

If you or a loved one is injured in an auto collision, there are strict deadlines that must be met to avoid compromising your right to financial recovery. The most important deadline is the statute of limitations which prohibits filing a lawsuit if it is not commenced within a certain period of time following one's accident or injury. Shorter time deadlines will apply if you are suing a public entity such as for a dangerous roadway, and their may be reporting requirements and other deadlines in insurance policies.
