October 2022, I was injured on my part time job. I hurt my back and was in a lot of pain. I called Montlick And Associates and was directed to attorney Jeffrey Kowalski and his paralegal Christopher Phillips they were awesome they fought for me and got me the settlement I deserved. I received phone calls from them asking me how was I feeling and if I needed anything. Excellent law firm I would definitely use them again 👍. Cherry Nesbit

I recently had the pleasure of working with Amy & Cate at Montlick, and I can't recommend them enough! From the moment I reached out for a consultation to the resolution of my case, the team displayed utmost professionalism, empathy, and expertise. Every question was answered promptly, and I was kept informed throughout the entire process. The attention to detail and dedication to my case was evident, and it truly felt like they went above and beyond to ensure the best possible outcome. It's clear that this firm not only has a deep understanding of the law but also a genuine commitment to their clients' well-being. If you're in need of legal assistance in Georgia , Montlick & associates should be your first call. A heartfelt thank you to the entire team for their exceptional service!

I was in an auto accident in December and I contacted Montlick for representation and from day one they made me feel like my case was as important to them as it was to me. Amy and Cate was very polite, professional, well informed and easy to reach. This made me feel very comfortable with this firm. My case manager Amy was awesome, she was always quick to call me back when I needed to speak to her and she called me at least every two weeks to keep me posted on my case even if there wasn’t any developments. My attorney Cate Powell was also great to work with, she too kept me very well informed on my case every step of the way. Up to the very end when we closed my case, they both explained everything very clearly, and made sure that I was comfortable with everything I was signing and made me feel welcome and appreciated. I would highly recommend Montlick Law to anyone with a personal injury. They will take great care of you.

Both Sarah Root (attorney) and Chris Gladys (legal assistant) were great with communicating and advising as they worked through my case. One, if not both, checked in and explained things at every step of the entire process. They were not only great at explaining what was going on, options, and the legality of every step and choice, but always friendly and professional. I greatly appreciate the guidance, and effort they put into my case.

Doing a review from friends phone.This is Danijel V.With that out of the way..Nives Juric is simply amazing. After my case was completed I walked her what is the maximum amount of stars I can leave her because being limited to only 5 does not seem to do her any justice.Professional, kind, caring, fast to respond to any questions or concerns one may have is just tip of the iceberg of what kind of service I personally have received from Nives Juric and her team Krystal.The amount of tenacity and effort that went into my case is unparalleled and comparable to none in a good way.Mrs.Juric is a phenomenal human being and a lawyer.Thank you for all the hard work and dedication I sincerely appreciate it.

The magnitude and depth of gratitude and appreciation for Nick Vocino and his assistant Amber Starks for the extraordinary, remarkable, inspiring, incredible, exceptional and exquisite work that they did for me when I got into a car crash is something I can never forget.I had just started working on my new Home Health Agency when my car was hit. I sustained some serious injuries in my knees, neck and back. That was a big blow to me .Right from the day I called Montlick and Associate and handed over my case to them ; They instantly became my new family: they showed genuine concern for my life; called me frequently to check on me and how my treatment was going.They encouraged me and wished me well when I was going for a surgery as a result of the injury I suffered due to the car crash. They were my fortress and they fought for me. They were timely with every information I needed to know about my case and the speed of communication is beyond imagination.My settlement was a dream come true and it was settled faster than I expected. Don’t even think twice about retaining Montlick and Associates whenever you get involved in any accident.Nick Vocino and Amber Starks are Angels in human form. They are full of compassion, empathy , respect ,resilience and yet they are super talented, professional, knowledgeable and overall astute in their work. I say this in all honesty and seriousness: Montlick and Associates have been a mammoth blessing to my life. May they continue to grow from strength to strength.
Charming Caregivers and Homemakers
If you or your love ones ever need an accident attorney, I recommend Montlick Injury Attorneys. Nick and his team were great, and was very attentive to my son’s needs. Nick worked hard to get my son a nice settlement to get back on his feet after his traumatic accident. We are are ever so grateful!

Attorney Jason Saltzman and his assistant Kris Brown did an exceptional job working my case. From beginning to end they were very caring about my injuries and concerns. They responded to all my calls, text and emails in a timely fashion and never seem to have an issue with all my questions, and I had many. Because of their obvious honesty, I decided that I could trust them to handle my business and decided to utilize patience. Although there were times that I wondered what was going on, was convinced that they had my best interest in mind. Kris made sure that she requested any and all documents and information they needed and followed up with me if needed. I would recommend this team at Motlick and Associates to anyone who may find themself in a situation like mine and have to endure the pain, suffering and injuries that I endured. At the end of the day I believe they did the best they could on my behalf. Although I am still experiencing the after effects of my surgery. I fell a since of relief from the outcome my team was able to achieve. Thank you Attorney Saltzman and Kris Brown.

Dayna and Ellen were very helpful negotiating on our behalf when our toddler was injured by a medical product. Initially the company told us directly we would be compensated for my son’s injury and treatment, but they then said that they actually don’t do that when I called to follow up after sending them the paperwork they asked for. So we reached out to Ellen to discuss our son and to see if she could contact the company on our behalf.Ellen and Dayna were very direct and honest about what we could expect and then kept us updated throughout their negotiations with the company responsible for my son’s injury and were able to get a settlement from the company for my son, without needing to go to court. They took the headache out of the situation and made everything very easy. Highly recommend them.

Honestly, at the first moment I wasn't going to go with Montlick & Associates, I was with another lawyer that didn't put my needs 1st 😒, I said ha forget that I'm going with Montlick Law Firm and I called and the first thing the Associate said is how you doing 😊 it made me feel so comfortable with them, I didn't have to do anything they handled all the work and made sure they took care of me in the end. I'm happy and will just say that you would be too if you decided to go with Montlick law firm!! #MontlickLawFirm #JusticeServed #ClientLove

I had the pleasure of working with Ellen Forrester when I tell you she fought tooth and nail for me she did just that! The insurance company was not willing to pay a dime for my injuries but Ms. Forrester was not only persistent and knowledgeable she was on top of her game. Thanks to her and her team I was able to win my case.
Angel Perkins
My first experience with Montlick I have no complaints. My lawyer Nick stayed on top of everything with the best advice, keeping in touch with me via text, email or phone call even if it was just checking on me to see how I was doing. He thoroughly explained everything to me and left no questions unanswered. I would definitely recommend montlick to my family and friends anyday. Thanks again Nick for all your hard work with my case.
Leslie House
I was injured at work and needed a lawyer who would understand and not take for granted what I was going through. Alex and Johnathan with MONTLICK & ASSOCIATES were like Batman and Robin. While Alex was leading the defense he had Johnathan that not only kept in constant contact with my day to day issues, he also had first hand experience of what my injuries were and what I was going through physical, mentally and emotionally. Alex & Johnathan, you both gave me a reason to believe that not all lawyers are only about their bottom line. I thank you both for being there when I was at one of the lowest points in my life.

Montlick Injury Attorneys (Scott M. Patterson) and Staff (Sarah / Tamia) were very professional, thoughtful, caring, transparent, and work extremely hard to reach the best injury settlement outcome for our case. Thank you!
Earnest
If you're ever in need of an injury attorney, Alex T. is the absolute best. He is extremely helpful and efficient and got my husband a great settlement after he was injured at work. His secretary Naneen was a God send! They made sure to respond very quickly when there were questions and always kept us well informed.

Do I Have a Case?

What About Workers' Comp?

Insurance Companies Are Not on Your Side

The emotional and physical distress following a construction accident can be devastating and taxing. It might feel like you have an endless list of logistics to figure out, all while dealing with immense physical pain. On top of all of that stress, the financial burden of an injury, including accompanying medical bills and lost wages, can be daunting and demoralizing.

Insurance companies aren’t strangers to the stress that comes with a construction accident and resulting injury—and they will often use your vulnerable state to their advantage. Their ultimate goal is to avoid paying a claim or to pay as little as possible. Insurance companies will often do everything they can to minimize your claim or deny it altogether.

A skilled Albany construction accident attorney will take charge of your case, navigating the intentionally complex world of insurance company claims for you. We take care of the complicated moving parts of your claims process so you can focus on healing.

Independent Contractors

Even if you’re employed as an independent contractor and receive a 1099 for taxes, you may still be entitled to workers’ comp benefits.

Find Out If You're Eligible

When It Happens on the Job

Whether you were injured by defective or poorly-maintained machinery, because an employer violated safety rules designed to protect you, or your injury was caused by someone who doesn’t work for your employer, our team will evaluate your accident and seek compensation from all parties that may be held liable.

Due to the high stakes of construction accident lawsuits, employers often attempt to shift blame to employees to avoid liability. Don’t take on the big insurance companies yourself.

Entrust the lawyers at Montlick to handle your suit quickly and efficiently and secure you the compensation you deserve so you can focus on your recovery.

Workers’ Compensation Benefits

Georgia’s no-fault workers’ compensation system provides financial and medical benefits to a worker who sustained an injury as a result of an on-the-job accident and helps protect injured employees and their dependents from lost wages and other hardships caused by the injury.

Depending on the circumstances, if your work injury involved an at-fault third party, you may be entitled to file a personal injury claim, in addition to your workers’ compensation claim. Typically a personal injury claim will be worth significantly more money, so it’s important that a skilled lawyer give appropriate consideration to all avenues of recovery that might be available.

Eligibility for Workers’ Comp Benefits

Generally speaking, in Georgia workers’ compensation will apply to any employer with 3 or more employees under the following circumstances:

  • You must be an employee (full or part-time)
  • You do not have to be employed by only one employer
  • You do not have to have a written employment contract

It’s always best to consult with an experienced attorney as soon as possible after an injury to make sure you understand your rights and the steps that are necessary to protect them. Additionally, there are certain legal time deadlines and insurance notification requirements that you must comply with in order to maintain your rights.

Fatal Falls

According to the National Institution for Occupational Safety and Health, falls remain the leading cause of work-related deaths in construction, accounting for more than 36% of the total number of fatalities in the industry and over 51% of all falls national among all industries.

Anytime a worker is engaged in activities that place them six feet or more above the ground, OSHA requires the use of fall protection equipment. However, not all employers enforce these safety practices.

Companies can help prevent falls from heights on their worksites by:

  • Providing the right equipment for working at heights, including scaffolding, guard rails, or barricades
  • Providing fall protection Personal Protective Equipment, such as hard hats, harnesses, and lanyards that meet OSHA standards

The most important takeaway from these statistics is that falls are preventable. If you or a loved one are injured or killed on a construction site, having legal representation capable of fighting for you is imperative so you can focus on your recovery. The Albany law professionals at Montlick will treat you like family and fight to earn you the compensation you deserve.
