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.

I would like to thank Mike Bish, MacKenzie Lisa's, and David Rubin for handling and litigate my case. They were very professional and helpful making sure that if I didn't have any issues with my workers comp claim. I will recommend Montlick & Associates to anyone that needs help. They keep communication open and have all the right people in place to answer all my questions and very knowledgeable of what steps to take when injured.

Montlick & Associates, Attorneys are outstanding. When a hit a run driver rear-ended my car, I called the law firm, and they worked on my case from the beginning to the end. I am very pleased with their service and I highly recommend them if you have legal matters.
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?

Many workplace accidents involve construction accidents, falls, defective machinery, explosions, and scaffolding accidents. Resulting injuries are often severe and can cause serious disabilities that prevent the injured person from returning to work. Workers’ comp protects injured employees and their dependents from lost wages and other hardships that the workplace injury caused.


Georgia’s workers’ compensation system generally applies to businesses with 3 or more employees. These laws provide financial and medical benefits to a worker who sustained an injury as a result of an accident, injury or occupational disease on-the-job, regardless of who was at fault for the accident.

Beyond Workers’ Comp Benefits

While workers’ compensation benefits can be critical for your recovery, you may be entitled to even more money in your pocket after a workplace injury. If your accident was the result of a third party such as, for example, another employee or a defective machine part, you could have an additional personal injury claim on top of your workers’ comp claim. That could mean a substantial sum of money. Find out your legal options when you speak with a Montlick attorney for your free consultation. Our attorneys thoroughly explore every avenue possible to maximize your financial compensation.

Independent Contractors

Even if you’re employed as an independent contractor, and file a 1099 for taxes, you may still be entitled to workers’ comp benefits. Contact us today to find out if you’re eligible.

In some instances, even those who are not actively working on a construction site can unfortunately be the victim of construction accidents. These incidents can include:

Construction creating dangerous or hazardous road conditions like spills or debris, falling construction materials striking passersby, explosions originating at construction sites, and more.

In fact, according to recent data, most fatalities resulting from work zone accidents happen to drivers and passengers, not the construction workers.

If you have been injured due to the operations of a construction zone, you could be entitled to compensation.

The #1 Cause of Construction Fatalities

Falling accounts for the greatest number of construction fatalities. While the falls may result from unstable work surfaces or human error, many occur due to the misuse or failure to use personal protective equipment. Ladder falls rank among the top reasons for fall injuries, according to OSHA. Falls from ladders may occur when:

  1. The wrong type of ladder is used
  2. Workers are improperly trained
  3. A ladder is loaded beyond its maximum
  4. A metallic ladder is used when conducting electrical work

A myriad of other reasons also contribute to construction place accidents, including:

  • slips and trips
  • airborne and material exposure
  • struck-by incidents
  • excessive noise
  • vibration-related injury
  • scaffold-related injury
  • electrical incident
  • burns
  • material handling
