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!

Cate Powell and her team did excellent job at getting me the help I needed. They referred me to a great medical facility for treatment. Any questions I had was met with a quick response and I was always up to date on what was happening. They made the process as easy as possible for me. I would highly recommend using Cate Powell with montlick and associates.

When it comes to personal injuries being handled with upmost quality care, professionalism and determination to resolve all legal woes quickly and successfully. I'll be the first in a very long line of satisfied customers to say that Monica Pearson, (one of Atlanta's great Black female broadcast journalists and the first, former WSB-TV evening anchor at Channel 2 Action News) who I truly admire was right on the money (meaning trustworthy) for informing all victims of negligence to seek legal help from a proven law firm such as Montlick & Associates, who I call the best of the best LEGAL STRONG ARMS in the personal injury business!I'm a client of this wonderful establishment who truly took care of all my needs relating to my unfortunate accident, all due to a distracted driver who paid dearly for his poor driving ability.In saying that, I must recognize two important people at the firm. One is legal assistant Amber Starks (a marvelous paralegal) who kept my spirit up while I dealt with my personal recovery. Amber Starks is fantastic person to know, and second is my attorney, the incredible Nick Vocino. I call him a "legal eagle battling ram" for the underdog against vicious insurance companies. He's terrific! Nick "The Battle Ram" Vocino is "no joke" when it comes to him protecting his clients, he's fabulous! And last but also first is the entire staff at Montlick, who made me feel like one of their family members, just splendid! Alright people, I stated I was recognizing two, but I ended up acknowledging four. Monica Pearson, Amber Starks, Nick Vocino and the staff at Montlick; thank you for all that you have done and still do. All of you have earned my respect and deserve a round of applause from your clients. Ladies & gentlemen, I appreciate you for a job well done. Many blessings I send to you.

Amber and Nick have been an outstanding team. They guided me through the legal process after my accident and always kept me up-to-date with progress on my case. Amber was always available to answer any questions, and was so polite and professional. Both Nick and Amber really did an amazing job of making me feel like I was their priority. Thanks so much to both of you!

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.

Above and Beyond Workers' Comp

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
