Scott Patterson was extremely helpful in our settlement for a horrible car accident I was involved with, would definitely use him again if ever needed. His team is hands down very professional and helpful during the whole process. 10/10 would recommend.
Amazing company Christopher glady was extremely helpful and Ms Root is is and excellent lawyer they got me exactly what I was expecting plus got me approved for a presettlement loan. If your in need of a good company choose montlick and ask for Chris or Ms Root
I appreciate Montlick & Associates. They helped me with a case when others said that I did not have a case. The constant communication and the attention given was superb, and my settlement was more than I expected. If ever I’m in need again, Montlick will be my first option.
Had a injury nobody else would take, Montlick took and and helped me to settleBrought my first ram truck from the settlement thank you Jason - Attorney, thank you Montlick. Also I want to thank Victoria Montlick Wins! Go with Montlick ! They will Lick the counterpart to pieces
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.
I had an overwhelmingly positive experience with Montlick from start to finish. I know for a fact that I would have had so much more pain and stress if it weren't for their handling of my case. Alyssa White and Antonia Morris handled everything with expert care. They were very communicative as well - any time I had a question it was answered immediately. I am so glad I made the right decision to call them when I needed help. I cannot recommend them enough!
Attorney Jennifer Fleming and her Assistant, Joy Herrington were beyond amazing! They were both very professional and patient. As well, no gaps in communication (major plus for me) and my case received above my expectations. Thank you team for educating me through the process and all you did to help my case.
Alyssa and Antonia was very professional and helpful when working on my case I highly suggest this law firm.
On Oct 30, 2022, I was in a Hit and Run Accident in Lagrange GA. by a non-insured motorist, Not naming the 3 previous law firms that totally almost ruined my chances in getting things doing and helping me through my nightmare. a year head almost went by feeling like i was the perpetrator and not the victim of a hit and run. I never been in any car accident of this multitude. I was so lost, had not guidance of what to do and how to do it right. Never even got to talk to any of the previous attorneys that claim they help people after a car accident. I had sunk into deep depression. As a retired Veteran that suffer from PTSD and Paranoia when i had to drive, I was so scared and afraid to the point I had other drivers around me wondering if i was a safe driver. until one night i was watch TV after praying to God to please send me an Angle to help me that's when Montlick & Associates commercial came on it was. I set up in my bed and knew if I wanted real help and be able to talk with an Attorney on my case and not some injury firm Secretary. I need to call right away cause time head already been wasted, fighting with the last three injury law firms. Mrs. Neives was my Angle along with everyone at Montlick I felt like not only did I have an Attorney but i also had an after Accident Mental Therapist she insured me that she would get everything back on the right track. and rewrite all the wrongs and make them right. not one time did i every had to call for any updates. if there was anything she needed answers to I was contact by her or someone on her team by email or phone call. the Only thing i regrate is not calling Monlick & Associates when the Hit and Run first Accrued from the Hospital. my story goes out to everyone who may find themselves in the same situation. Yes, there is a lot of an injury law firms out there but I will bet my bottom dollar that you will not talk to nor know who your attorney is and be kept updated about your cause if you're not a client of Montlick & Associates. I thank my Heavenly Father for everyone at Montlick & Associates
Montlick & Associates (Doug Rosser, Jamie and their amazing team) goes above and beyond! Very professional...great communication and helpful! I appreciate their service and I would absolutely recommend this Law Firm!!!
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.
Ellen Forrester and Nicole Casorio are the best in the business.Incredible professionalism, honesty and efficiency.Not only was Ellen 100% accurate on her assessment of my case, she was also a straight shooter.Nicole thank you for your patience and help in navigating this stressful process.10/10
Since Covid, I’ve been in 3 hit-and-run accidents in which neither were my fault. I had a different attorney represented me in the first accident who was not very attentive nor responsive to my numerous calls and questions. For my second and third accident, I decided to go with Montlick and Associates, specifically Attorney Cate Powell. Cate, returned my call; she listened, took notes, allowed me to vent about chronic pain I was experiencing and after finding out that the other driver almost got out of paying the liability claim due to a technicality, Cate assured me that she had everything under control. Unlike my first attorney, she not only provided updates but she checked on my recovery as well; and if she was unable to personally update me, she allowed her team to provide an update. Cate is a fighter for her clients, she even dealt with my insurance to ensure that I received everything that was owed to me. And she also represented my husband as well. She is now someone I trust wholeheartedly, and if I ever have a legal matter, I can call her for help and if she can’t represent me, she will certainly point me in the right direction.So, if you’re ever in an accident and seeking legal representation, and need a no-nonsense attorney, call Attorney Cate Powell because I am telling you from experience – she would be your one call that would fully represent you. Trust me!
Hi I would like to thank Scott Patterson for everything for helping me with my case. He is a nice and terrific guy.

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.

A Common Problem

Medical malpractice happens more often than most people realize. Each year thousands of cases are reported due to negligence regarding surgery, misdiagnosis, overprescription, poor aftercare, premature discharge, and more. In the United States, medical error results in 10% of all deaths. The reality of medical malpractice claims is startling:

  • 21% of people have experienced medical errors
  • Approximately 33% of medical malpractice claims are misdiagnosis errors
  • Nearly 4,000 surgical errors occur yearly in the US
  • Between 15-18,000 lawsuits are filed each year alleging malpractice or negligence.

Be Prepared. Know Your Timeline.

It’s absolutely key to act before the statute of limitations passes. The statute of limitations varies by state, and can even vary depending on the unique situation. The best practice is to contact a highly-skilled Montlick lawyer to help determine your status as quickly as possible.
