I had the pleasure of working with Attorney Scott Patterson who truly went above and beyond for my case. He's so amazing! His expertise and dedication were evident throughout the process, and I couldn't be happier with the outcome. Thanks to the hard work and patience put into my case. I received a fantastic and fair settlement that exceeded my expectations. Furthermore, his assistant, Sarah Duncan, played an integral role in the success of my case. Her professionalism and support were outstanding. She consistently demonstrated a genuine concern for my needs and was always there to provide assistance whenever I needed it.Overall, I am incredibly grateful for the outstanding service provided by Attorney Scott Patterson and team. I wholeheartedly recommend Montlick & Associates law firm to anyone in need of legal representation. Thank you so much!

Attorney Scott Patterson was outstanding in getting us compensated for an injury to our 3 yr old. Other attorneys probably wouldn't have bothered with our case but he took a chance and worked his butt off which led to us receiving a settlement. Very pleased!Walter

On November 30, 2022 I experienced the worst injury that I have ever experienced at fault not my own, while on a quick out of town trip. Not only was I severely burned at an establishment, but I was denied representation by several firms where my incident happened. Unbeknownst to me just because an incident happens in a certain state doesn't mean you have to obtain representation there, which is how I had a turn around in defeat. Not only did Montlick & Associates instantly take my case, Ellen Forrester provided candor from the start on the pros, cons, and how she could deliver her services with the goal of fighting for me as her client being one that was truly heartfelt. From constant check ins from Dayna Clark (Ellen's Senior Legal Assistant), to pertinent information delivered directly from Ellen, I felt the utmost service with care was provided. Ellen was diligent in getting the best results no matter the fight. In the end I had a successful outcome and hopefully raised enough awareness for an incident this traumatic not to happen to anyone else. I Thank Ellen & Dayna for all their hard work and would recommend more stars if I could based on their client care alone.

Rudolph Frazier
I am so happy with the results that Jason got for my case. All other practices wouldn't take my case but not Jason. He knew I had a bad fall and injury. He and Esmerelda worked so hard and informed me of every detail immediately. I highly recommend their services. If I ever need an accident attorney, I will not hesitate to call Jason. Thank you and I hope you enjoyed the goodies I baked for you. I will forever be grateful for the settlement you got for me.

What About Workers' Comp?

Insurance Companies Are Not on Your Side

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

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

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.

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.
