Cate Powell and Amy Jones did an awesome job. I got more than expected from my case. They did not stop till everything was met. Montlick attorneys are the best.

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.

Caring, professional and thorough. They go above and beyond to make sure your well being is taken care of first. Both Douglas and Gia are a team that cannot be matched by any other firm. They call you within the first week to let you know they take their job very serious without any form of arrogance. Thank you for representing me and my child! I'm a client for life!

Claiming Your Benefits

Workers’ compensation is a mandatory insurance program in Georgia, providing payment for medical expenses and lost wages, as well as any temporary or permanent disabilities a worker has incurred when they’ve been injured on the job.

Eligibility for workers comp involves:

  • Being an employee of a company that has workers’ comp insurance
  • Having suffered an injury that occurred at work or as a result of job-related duties

In many cases you can still receive benefits, even if you were at fault, as workers’ compensation is a no-fault system.

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.
Are You Eligible?

The workers’ compensation system generally provides an exclusive remedy for employees against their employers and co-workers, meaning an injured employee cannot ordinarily file a personal injury action against their employer, even if the employer was at-fault for the accident. However, there are exceptions to this rule.

In Georgia, workers injured on the job due to the negligence of a third party other than their employer can normally pursue a personal injury claim against the at-fault party in addition to obtaining workers’ compensation benefits. Third parties can include:

  • At-fault parties that contributed to the accident other than your employer
  • The makers of a defective piece of equipment
  • Negligent property owners, and more

Our attorneys will examine all avenues of compensation when determining your legal options. In personal injury cases, we pursue compensation on behalf of our clients, including:

  • Compensation for medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and Suffering
  • Punitive damages, when applicable
