October 2022, I was injured on my part time job. I hurt my back and was in a lot of pain. I called Montlick And Associates and was directed to attorney Jeffrey Kowalski and his paralegal Christopher Phillips they were awesome they fought for me and got me the settlement I deserved. I received phone calls from them asking me how was I feeling and if I needed anything. Excellent law firm I would definitely use them again 👍. Cherry Nesbit

Attorney Jason Saltzman and his assistant Kris Brown did an exceptional job working my case. From beginning to end they were very caring about my injuries and concerns. They responded to all my calls, text and emails in a timely fashion and never seem to have an issue with all my questions, and I had many. Because of their obvious honesty, I decided that I could trust them to handle my business and decided to utilize patience. Although there were times that I wondered what was going on, was convinced that they had my best interest in mind. Kris made sure that she requested any and all documents and information they needed and followed up with me if needed. I would recommend this team at Motlick and Associates to anyone who may find themself in a situation like mine and have to endure the pain, suffering and injuries that I endured. At the end of the day I believe they did the best they could on my behalf. Although I am still experiencing the after effects of my surgery. I fell a since of relief from the outcome my team was able to achieve. Thank you Attorney Saltzman and Kris Brown.

Caring, professional and thorough. They go above and beyond to make sure your well being is taken care of first. Both Douglas and Gia are a team that cannot be matched by any other firm. They call you within the first week to let you know they take their job very serious without any form of arrogance. Thank you for representing me and my child! I'm a client for life!

Workplace Injury Lawyers Serving Columbus, GA

You Work Hard. So Do We.

Workers’ compensation claims and personal injury claims often overlap. In many cases, you can pursue both at the same time: filing a workers’ comp claim with your employer and filing a personal injury claim against a third party that contributed to your injury. For example, your attorney may be able to pursue a workers’ compensation claim with your employer and a personal injury claim against a negligent equipment manufacturer.

If you suffer an injury while on the job or helping your employer outside of normal workplace hours, you will generally be able to seek workers’ compensation benefits. These benefits may include income replacement checks, medical care and disability compensation.

In most cases, an employee may pursue a workers’ compensation claim even if that employee may have contributed to causing their own injury, though some exceptions apply. During your free consultation with a Montlick attorney, we will examine the details of your situation and advise you on your specific legal rights.

What If the Accident Was Not My Employer’s Fault?

Sometimes, accidents are truly no one’s fault. For example, maybe you lift a heavy box in your warehouse job and your back gives out, causing you pain and making you unable to work. The workers’ comp system is a no-fault system, which removes the obstacle of proving fault by one’s employer. That means, if you were injured on the job, regardless of how it happened, you could be entitled to receive workers’ comp benefits. There are some exceptions to this, but a workers’ comp attorney can walk you through your options.

If there was an additional party responsible for your accident (for example, a defective piece of machinery contributed to your workplace injury), you could also have a personal injury claim in addition to your workers’ comp claim. Montlick lawyers are skilled, knowledgeable and experienced, and will explore every option to maximize the value of your claim, ultimately leading to more money in your pocket.
