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.

I was in an auto accident in December and I contacted Montlick for representation and from day one they made me feel like my case was as important to them as it was to me. Amy and Cate was very polite, professional, well informed and easy to reach. This made me feel very comfortable with this firm. My case manager Amy was awesome, she was always quick to call me back when I needed to speak to her and she called me at least every two weeks to keep me posted on my case even if there wasn’t any developments. My attorney Cate Powell was also great to work with, she too kept me very well informed on my case every step of the way. Up to the very end when we closed my case, they both explained everything very clearly, and made sure that I was comfortable with everything I was signing and made me feel welcome and appreciated. I would highly recommend Montlick Law to anyone with a personal injury. They will take great care of you.

The magnitude and depth of gratitude and appreciation for Nick Vocino and his assistant Amber Starks for the extraordinary, remarkable, inspiring, incredible, exceptional and exquisite work that they did for me when I got into a car crash is something I can never forget.I had just started working on my new Home Health Agency when my car was hit. I sustained some serious injuries in my knees, neck and back. That was a big blow to me .Right from the day I called Montlick and Associate and handed over my case to them ; They instantly became my new family: they showed genuine concern for my life; called me frequently to check on me and how my treatment was going.They encouraged me and wished me well when I was going for a surgery as a result of the injury I suffered due to the car crash. They were my fortress and they fought for me. They were timely with every information I needed to know about my case and the speed of communication is beyond imagination.My settlement was a dream come true and it was settled faster than I expected. Don’t even think twice about retaining Montlick and Associates whenever you get involved in any accident.Nick Vocino and Amber Starks are Angels in human form. They are full of compassion, empathy , respect ,resilience and yet they are super talented, professional, knowledgeable and overall astute in their work. I say this in all honesty and seriousness: Montlick and Associates have been a mammoth blessing to my life. May they continue to grow from strength to strength.

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

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!

We all know that slightly embarrassing feeling of tripping over our own feet. Sometimes, a slip-and-fall is simply an accident that isn’t anyone’s fault. However, the circumstances change when hazardous conditions on a property cause a fall.

Slip and Fall Cases Can Be Complex

Get the Money You Deserve

With over 40 years of experience, we know what it takes to get you the compensation you deserve if you’ve been injured due to a negligent property owner.

Slip and fall cases against property owners often involve complex legal issues, such as sovereign immunity when pursuing an injury claim against a public entity, the legal relationship between the parties and the purpose of the injury victim for being on the premises as well as other important legal questions that can impact liability.

Our Columbus slip and fall attorneys at Montlick also recognize that slip and fall claims may require careful investigation of lighting conditions, the amount of time a hazard was present, maintenance practices, prior accident reports and other factors. We have successfully represented Columbus slip and fall victims since our law firm was founded in 1984.

What Is Premises Liability?

Slip and fall accident claims are governed by the area law referred to as “premises liability.” Premises liability law defines the duty of property owners to make their premises safe for those who come on their land or to warn about potential hazards that are not obvious to visitors. While a Columbus commercial property owners conducting business on the premises essentially have an obligation to make their premises reasonably safe by removing known hazards or investigating to discover hazards that they should know exist, this duty can vary depending on the reason a visitor is on the premises.

When a customer is patronizing a Columbus business, the business owner generally must take reasonable care to make the premises safe from foreseeable hazards and hidden dangers. This includes conducting reasonable inspections and maintenance of the premises to discover unsafe conditions like a bunched up rug, broken step, slick or sticky substance on the floor or other hazards.

What Damages are Available?

When a serious Columbus slip and fall causes serious injuries, it can result in physical limitations or pain and emotional stress and anxiety as well as challenging financial obstacles. Our Columbus slip and fall accident law firm may be able to pursue a claim for multiple forms of financial compensation including:

  • The expenses associated with medical treatment including hospitalization
  • Pain and suffering which may include diminished enjoyment of life

  • Other damages depending on facts

We Know How to Get Slip and Fall Victims Paid

When a Columbus slip and fall injury victim pursues a legal claim, it is important to understand the key role of an investigation and proper discovery of the facts. Slip and fall cases in Columbus will typically turn on the specific facts surrounding the incident that results in injury. Our experienced Columbus slip and fall accident injury lawyers may investigate for evidence of carelessness or indifference by a business owner including patterns of accidents and the response of the property owner to those reports, a lack of proper maintenance inspections, inadequate lighting, the use of warning signs and barriers, and more.

Your attorney might use any of the following methods to prove liability and get you the money you deserve:

  • Inspection of the premises
  • Review of business records
  • Examination of store accident reports
  • Public records of past accidents requiring emergency medical response personnel
  • Surveillance video
  • Citation or inspection records by fire and building inspectors
  • Accident reports made at the time of the Columbus slip and fall accident
  • Interviews with witnesses and customers including suppliers, patrons and employees
  • Review of prior lawsuits or settlements

Common Slip-and-Fall Injuries

Slip and fall injuries are often parodied in movies as minor incidents with exaggerated injuries, but this is a gross misrepresentation of the types of permanently debilitating injuries that often result from a Columbus slip and fall accident. There are over nine million people disabled or hospitalized in slip and fall incidents annually in the U.S., and an elderly person dies in a fatal slip and fall accident every 35 minutes. Columbus slip and fall accidents can result in serious injuries including:

  • Severe head trauma including injuries to the brain
  • Broken bones including frequent hip injuries in seniors
  • Damage to the spinal cord that may result in impaired sensation, mobility limitations and paralysis
  • Ligament and tendon damages to knees and other joints that require surgery
  • Wrongful death
