Slip, Trip & Fall Lawyers Serving Macon

Don't Settle for Less

Sometimes, a slip and fall is simply an accident that isn’t anyone’s fault. But that changes when hazardous conditions on a property cause the injury. 

A dangerous condition on someone’s property that results in an injury to someone else can be grounds for a personal injury claim. These types of claims fall under the category known as “premises liability.” The world of premises liability is extremely complicated. That’s where we come in. We can fight on your behalf so you can receive the money you deserve to heal from your injury.

The Money You Need, the Respect You Deserve.

We know people tend to downplay the severity of slip, trip and fall injuries. Not us. We take your pain seriously, and we’ve seen the toll these injuries can take on a client’s physical and financial wellbeing. We’re here to help fight for your full physical and financial recovery.

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!

There are many positive words to describe my experience with Montlick & Associates. However, the ones that are most applicable to my case are professional, responsive, knowledgeable, and trustworthy.I truly appreciate the time and effort that Nick Vocino and Amber Starks spent on my behalf. The entire process took about 2 years from the date of the accident to the date I got my settlement check. Nick kept me apprised every step of the way and for that, I am truly grateful!Montlick & Associates is a 5-star law firm. I would absolutely recommend it to my family and friends!

Macon Slip and Fall Attorneys

We Take Slip and Falls Seriously 

Slip and fall accidents happen every day in Georgia. Injures caused by a hazardous property can range from minor scrapes and bruises to serious or even catastrophic suffering. Common injuries resulting from slips, trips and falls include broken, fractured or shattered bones, head injuries (such as concussions and traumatic brain injuries), back or spinal cord injuries, damage to internal organs or internal bleeding, and even death.

Despite sometimes being parodied as minor accidents, slip and fall injuries lead to over one million hospital visits in the United States each year. These accidents are much more serious than people realize, causing a great deal of pain, anguish, and financial expense.

At Montlick, we understand how serious slip and fall injuries can be and the substantial impact they can have on a person or loved one’s life. Our law firm has more than 40 years of experience representing injured individuals in Macon, fighting to free them from financial uncertainty and obtain justice for their injury.

Under Georgia law (Title 51, Chapter 3, Article 1), a property owner or occupier (such as a renter or lessee) can be found liable for slip and fall injuries sustained on the property if the property owner or occupier fails to exercise ordinary care in keeping the premises and approaches safe. Under the law, a store owner has a duty to ensure the store premises are safe and free from hazards. A common slip and fall accident occurs when a customer slips on liquid that has not been cleaned up and is not marked with a warning of the hazard, such as a safety or caution sign. In such cases, depending on the circumstances, a store owner can be found liable if the slip and fall resulted in injuries.

Under the rule of “superior knowledge,” the property owner is liable when he or she has knowledge of a dangerous condition that people entering the property, such as customers or guests, would have no reason to know about, and an injury occurs as a result. When property owners do not take the appropriate steps to remedy the dangerous condition or provide people entering the property with an adequate warning of its existence, such property owners are violating their duty of care to others and committing negligent conduct that leads to serious injuries and sometimes death.

Can I Receive Compensation?

Georgia law is designed to protect those invited to the premises for “business purposes”. This would include customers in stores, patrons in restaurants, tenants and their guests in apartment complexes, and others. Georgia law is not designed to protect trespassers, who have no lawful right to be on the property, from negligence. If a trespasser suffers injuries from slipping and falling on another’s property, he or she likely would not be eligible to receive compensation for his or her personal injuries.

How We Prove Fault

Montlick Has You Covered

Being in an accident with a drunk driver can bring up a lot of question and issues, but you don’t have figure them out on your own. Montlick is here to provide peace of mind and give you the compensation you deserve.

In order to prove that another person or company negligently caused you to slip and fall, resulting in injuries, you must directly link the negligent party’s conduct to your fall. Examples include the following:

  • The owner, agent, or employee of the building or premises where the slip and fall occurred actually caused the conditions that led to the slip and fall, such as knowingly or negligently leaving standing liquid on the floor, having torn edges on the carpet or flooring that make for an uneven surface, and untreated icy surfaces, among other examples; or
  • The owner, agent, or employee knew or should have known that dangerous conditions existed that could cause an individual to slip and fall and become injured and, in turn, did not take the necessary steps to cure the defect.

If it is shown that the owner, agent, or employee of the premises was aware of certain conditions that could cause slip and fall injuries and failed to take any steps to make the conditions safe, an injured plaintiff likely can establish fault.

Sometimes the owner, agent or employee truly did not know about the hazard. In those cases, though, the law also states that if a “reasonable” owner, agent, or employee would have known about the dangerous conditions in the same or similar circumstances, then an injured plaintiff can demonstrate liability. This is called the “reasonable person standard” and is used to measure if a person or company’s conduct rose to negligence.

It is also important that the plaintiff also knew less about the hazard than the property owner. If the plaintiff has “equal notice” to that of the owner/occupier, then Georgia law will generally prevent the plaintiff from obtaining compensation.

For example, if a person sees an employee mopping a floor, then afterwards steps over the area of the wet floor, it can be difficult to prove that the property owner was negligent. Another example of this concept would be if a warning, such as a caution or hazard sign, was present near the defect at the time that the person sustained an injury. This is why it is so important to not only prove that the property owner knew or should have known of the hazardous defect, but that his/her knowledge was superior to that of the injured person.

Avoid a Costly Mistake

Legal Time Deadlines

It is always important to remember that there are strict time limits placed on the ability to collect compensation in a personal injury case. In Georgia, an injured individual is generally required to file their claim within two years of the of the incident, but statutes of limitation vary by state. Even within Georgia, there are exceptions that can shorten or lengthen the deadlines depending on the specific facts of a case.

Failing to file within the statute of limitation can prevent a person with an otherwise legitimate claim from being able to seek compensation for their injuries.

Other Time Deadlines

Non-legal deadlines can also affect your claim value. Many insurance policy contracts have timely notification deadlines, and if those are not met, you could forfeit your right to financial recovery.

In many cases, evidence such as security camera footage or witness testimony can be crucial to proving liability, and it is important for your lawyer to begin their investigation as soon a possible after the incident to avoid that evidence disappearing or being compromised.

If you have sustained injury in slip and fall incident in or near Macon, Georgia, contact Montlick to discuss your claim with an experienced personal injury attorney to learn about your legal rights as well as what steps can be taken to protect those rights.

Why You Need a Lawyer After a Slip and Fall Injury

Slip and fall cases can be difficult to prove, subject to the availability of evidence. Depending on the case, it can take the thorough evaluation and diligence of a knowledgeable Georgia personal injury attorney to connect the dots and link a negligent party’s conduct to your injuries.

Slip and fall cases are stronger when there is documentation that an incident and injury actually occurred. For example, if there are store security cameras and eyewitnesses to verify that a slip and fall happened and the injury resulted because of dangerous conditions on the premises, then the case has a greater likelihood of success.

Our Macon slip and fall attorneys are knowledgeable about Georgia’s premises liability laws as well as what is required to prove liability in these types of cases. Moreover, our attorneys, in the appropriate cases, interview witnesses, photograph accident scenes, and conduct appropriate evidence preservation measures.
