Attorney Jason took my case and he did an exceptional Job from start to finish. He kept me informed throughout the process. Thanks Montlick & Associates for providing excellent service.
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!
Michael Moran and his team took good care of me. They kept me in the loop of everything that was going on. All I did was do what they wanted me to do and kept them updated. I’m very satisfied with the outcome of my settlement. Thanks.
From day one to the end, I was kept informed about the status of my case. They answered all my questions I had and never made me feel that I was bothering them. I am very satisfied with the end result of my case and will recommend them to others. Thank you Attorney Jennifer and your Assistant Rachel for making me feel right at home as a part of the family. The Lord bless you both and your families in Jesus name Amen.
Mike Moran was very open and frank about how presented the case to me and his suggestion were on point. Thank you
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.

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.

Catastrophic Injuries: Severe and Complex

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 39 years of experience pursuing every avenue to get you the maximum amount of money possible. Find out today what your case is worth.
