When I was involved in a Automobile accident, my wife said you have to called Montlick & Associates. That was the best called I have ever made. 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.
This is my second time using Montlick & Associates. I was referred to them by my brother who had previously used them for an accident he was involved in. After hiring them for my first accident case I was very impressed. They made sure I understood the whole process and was willing to answer any questions I had. My first accident case settled for 50k and my second case was for 80k. My attorney was Aaron Monick. He’s truly one of the best attorneys in the business. Needless to say, I was very happy with both outcomes. If u need an accident attorney, do yourself a huge favor and contact Montlick & Associates, I guarantee u that you won’t regret it. Their customer service and professionalism and A1!

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.

My experience with Montlick and having Ms. Sara Root alongside her team member went above the call of duty to assist me and daughter after our accident a few months. I'm very grateful to have them on my side the whole step of the way.Thanks again Ms. Sara Root, Chris Gladys and the rest of Montlick & Associates.

Jason and Kalena took great care of me! This was my second experience with Jason and his team and I truly feel seen and heard every time. This time around, the accident was extremely rough. My life was in shambles and I am still baffled at how reassuring everyone was consistently. I trust his expertise wholeheartedly. I am always satisfied with his communication and overall results. I hope I don't have to deal with an accident ever again but if I had to deal, I know where I am headed. I appreciate you all!!
I had an amazing experience with Montlick & Associates. I had my first car accident and never had to go through anything like this before. Cate and Amy were extremely helpful, reassuring, and answered any questions I had in a timely manner whether it be email or a phone call. Great communication and very friendly, satisfied with my settlement as well. If I ever have another accident I would love to get Cate and Amy again! Thank you.

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.
