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.
I had the pleasure of working with Ellen Forrester when I tell you she fought tooth and nail for me she did just that! The insurance company was not willing to pay a dime for my injuries but Ms. Forrester was not only persistent and knowledgeable she was on top of her game. Thanks to her and her team I was able to win my case.
Paula Molano was my attorney and I must say she did an amazing job with my case. She kept me informed on everything and any questions I had she answered. Very amazing attorney shes the best in my eyes. Thanks for everything
My first experience with Montlick I have no complaints. My lawyer Nick stayed on top of everything with the best advice, keeping in touch with me via text, email or phone call even if it was just checking on me to see how I was doing. He thoroughly explained everything to me and left no questions unanswered. I would definitely recommend montlick to my family and friends anyday. Thanks again Nick for all your hard work with my case.

Catastrophic Injury in Columbus

The Cost of a Catastrophic Injury

The precise cost of a severe injury varies from individual to individual, however a the following are a few possible needs that could arise for the victim and their family after a catastrophic injury:
Accessible Housing: Many catastrophic injury victims find that their current home will no longer meet their needs when they return from the hospital. They may require accommodations like an accessible bath/shower, ramps, chair lifts, elevators, and more. The injured person may require moving to a new home altogether.
Mobility Devices: Wheelchairs, scooters and other mobility devices come at an enormous cost.
Pain Management: The injured person might require ongoing care for pain management, including medications, additional surgeries, specialist appointments, ongoing physical therapy and more.
Long-Term Care: In many cases, the injured person might require long-term, 24/7 care from a trained medical professional, whether in their home or in a medical facility.
Your Montlick attorney assesses the injuries and medical needs of you or your loved one and works with experts to determine the total amount of money necessary to provide you financial support for past and future medical expenses.

Defining “Catastrophic”

A catastrophic injury is one caused by sudden trauma that substantially results in severe disability and physical limitation. Examples of catastrophic injuries include:

Traumatic brain injury (TBI), coma, multiple broken bones or compound fractures, spinal cord injuries resulting in paralysis (temporary or permanent), limb amputation, internal organ damage, loss of vision, hearing, or other sensory loss and more.


Any violent trauma can cause a catastrophic injury. Catastrophic injuries can result from high-speed or violent vehicle crashes, pedestrian accidents, bicycle accidents, defective products, slips/trips and falls, falls from heights while at work, or medical malpractice, to name a few examples.

Extended Recovery Times Means Extensive Medical Bills

The massive trauma that causes a catastrophic injury often results in near-death for the victim. Therefore, the primary responsibility of first responders and emergency room physicians is to perform life-saving functions and, in many cases, surgery. Medical personnel will turn their attention to the victim’s recovery after they stabilized the victim and immediate death is no longer a critical threat.

Catastrophic injuries generally require an extended recovery and rehabilitation period, especially if surgical procedures are involved. Many people are hospitalized for weeks or months after they emerge from intensive care and most who suffer a catastrophic injury are admitted to long-term care facilities, such as nursing homes or rehabilitation hospitals. The care at these medical facilities focuses on helping the victim build up strength and adapt to their injury, as in the case of an amputation or paralysis. Sometimes, the victim is comatose, and the victim’s family helplessly waits, hoping that the victim will regain consciousness. Some victims might experience long-term reduced cognitive or physical functioning.

Families also need to deal with the financial reality of the situation and try to heal emotionally as they grapple with an extremely difficult situation.

The Advocates You Deserve

Our attorneys fight fiercely on behalf of each client in order to maximize their financial recovery.

What Is Your Case Worth?
The Money You Need

In Georgia, victims of another’s negligence can collect economic (monetary) damages, including past and future medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, costs associated with medical treatment, such as expenses for medical equipment, transportation to doctors’ visits, construction or reconfiguration of the victim’s home, lost wages, loss of future economic opportunity, and more.

The victim can also normally recover general damages, including pain and suffering. Punitive damages are also a possibility if the defendant’s conduct rose to the level of gross negligence.

The exact amount of compensation you receive will depend on the unique facts and circumstances of your case, but rest assured that Montlick has 40 years of experience pursuing every avenue to get you the maximum amount of money possible. Find out today what your case is worth.
