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.

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.

She and I both highly recommend anyone and everyone searching for legal assistance to contact Montlick and Associates.

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.

When It Happens On The Job

Workplace injuries are common in many types of employment environments, but the construction industry is virtually unparalleled in terms of the scope and seriousness of workplace injuries. From heavy machinery accidents to exposure to hazardous materials, construction sites pose a multitude of potential dangers to employees, contractors, construction site visitors and even those in the immediate vicinity of a construction site. Construction accidents result in hundreds of thousands of people seeking medical treatment each year. Construction sites also are one of leading workplace environments for job related fatalities.

Our experienced Columbus construction accident lawyers at Montlick recognize the unique challenges that face those who suffer serious injury or wrongful death.

Our Columbus construction accident law firm has been providing aggressive representation and advocacy on behalf of construction site accident victims since our law firm was founded almost three decades ago. Construction accidents involve a rapidly changing workplace environment, complex inter-relationships between business entities and challenges in obtaining compensation beyond workers’ compensation benefits.

Our Columbus construction accident attorneys assist construction accident victims in navigating these hurdles to obtaining the maximum compensation for their injuries.

We may also be able to identify responsible third parties that may have contributed to a Columbus construction accident. While an employee is typically limited to workers’ compensation benefits against an employer, third parties may be liable for broader damages in a personal injury case. Our Columbus construction accident attorneys often are able to supplement workers’ compensation benefits with an additional personal injury claim, collecting damages for pain and suffering, impaired quality of life experience, diminished marital relationship and services as well as other damages.
