Hi I would like to thank Scott Patterson for everything for helping me with my case. He is a nice and terrific guy.
After a terrible accident, we turned to Ellen Forrester at Montlick for help with my mom's case. She walked us through everything step by step, handled the documentation and when it came time, her colleague, Mike Moran, and her represented my mom amazingly at mediation. While we are very happy with the settlement reached, this process was so much easier with their care and guidance. We will forever recommend them and Montlick to anyone.
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.

My attorney did his job. He helped me and listened to me. He was a blessing to have as my attorney.
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.
I had a wonderful experience with Montlick and my lawyer Nick Vocino. He was very efficient and always available if I needed him. I would recommend Montlick and Nick V. to anyone who needs help after an accident!
My experience with Montlick&Associates was truly a great one. They represented me and my family very well from start to finish. Ms. Forrester and Ms. Casoriowere exceptional and very good at keeping me informed and helpful during my time as their client. I would recommend to anyone that needs an a attorney, look no further because Montlick&Associates is and will be the first to call.Sincerely,Lawrence
I cannot say enough good things about Ellen Forrester and Dayna Clark at Montlick. They took an awful incident and walked me through the process of getting the care I needed and knowledge to help pay for expenses and get a reasonable claim to help me and my family. I have recommended them to others and definitely recommend them to those looking for an attorney that listens and treats you like a person.
Amazing experience with montlick . They were helpful during entire time especially Mr Vocino. I would definitely recommend them to others .

Medical Malpractice Claims Lawyers

Types of Medical Malpractice Cases

Claims arising out of medical malpractice are not necessarily restricted to doctors and can extend to physician assistants, nurses, nurse practitioners, therapists, dentists, and medical specialists, such as dermatologists, neurosurgeons, cardiologists, urologists, etc.

Common types of medical malpractice include:

Delayed or misdiagnosed: Prompt diagnosis is crucial to your medical care and ultimate recovery. When a doctor fails to quickly diagnose or even wrongly diagnoses the patient, they can miss out on life-saving treatment and suffer injury or death. In such cases, the patient or their family may be able to pursue a medical malpractice claim against the doctor who made the error.

Surgical errors: Practicing surgeons regularly hold the lives of patients in their hands and mistakes made during surgery can have catastrophic results. Surgical errors can include leaving instruments within the patient’s body, operating on the wrong part of the body, and using unclean instruments. Anesthesia errors can also result in permanent injury, brain damage, or death.

Childbirth injuries: Many types of fetal injuries can be caused by medical practice, including brain injuries, fractured bones, brachial plexus injuries, and others. The mother can also sustain injuries due to medical malpractice. Such injuries can be caused by negligence during prenatal care and childbirth.

Medication errors: Prescription drug errors injure millions annually. Errors can be made during the prescribing, administering, or filling stage.
