How a Montlick Injury Attorney Can Help
We handle the insurance company for you.
A primary goal of insurance companies is to minimize, delay, and deny your claim. Insurance companies routinely take advantage of the emotional and financial stresses following an on-the-job injury in an effort to get individuals to settle for less than what they deserve under the law. We deal directly with the insurance companies so you don’t have to. Our attorneys navigate the complex and often intentionally confusing insurance claim landscape so our clients can focus on healing.
Insurance companies know that you having legal representation is bad for their bottom line. They know that having experienced legal counsel by your side in your workers’ compensation case is likely to significantly increase your chances of success, as well as the dollar amount that you receive.
Since 1984, the experienced workers’ compensation attorneys at Montlick & Associates have represented individuals throughout Georgia who have been seriously injured or killed in workplace accidents. Our knowledgeable and compassionate team of attorneys and staff will carefully investigate your workplace injury and aggressively pursue the maximum compensation to which you are entitled under the law. Call 1-800-LAW-NEED (1-800-529-6333) today for your free consultation. You can also fill out a free case evaluation form or use our 24/7 live chat.
Do I Have a Workers’ Compensation Case?
The workplace can be a dangerous place, which is why Georgia’s government developed a workers' compensation system that generally applies to businesses with 3 or more employees. These laws provide financial and medical benefits to a worker who sustained an injury as a result of an accident, injury or occupational disease on-the-job, regardless of who was at fault for the accident. Many workplace accidents involve construction accidents, falls, defective machinery, explosions, and scaffolding accidents. Resulting injuries are often severe and can cause serious disabilities that prevent the injured person from returning to work. Workers’ compensation (often referred to as “workers’ comp”) protects injured employees and their dependents from lost wages and other hardships that the workplace injury caused.
Depending on the circumstances, if you have a workers’ compensation claim that involves an at-fault third party, you may also have an additional claim against that third party. This additional claim could potentially have a much higher financial value, and can be brought in addition to the workers’ compensation case.
Worker’s Compensation Eligibility
Generally speaking, in Georgia workers compensation will apply to any employer with 3 or more employees under the following circumstances:
- You must be an employee: Someone who works for another person or entity under a contract of hire and receives a salary or hourly wage
- You do not have to be employed full-time
- You do not have to be employed by only one employer
- You do not have to have a written employment contract
- Employees can include undocumented persons, prisoners and minors
- Longshoremen, harbor workers, and defense workers can file under the state or federal system, or both
Keep in mind that in other states the law may vary, and then it’s always best to consult with an experienced attorney as soon as possible after an injury to make sure you understand your rights and the steps that are necessary to protect those rights. Additionally, there are certain legal time deadlines and notification requirements that you must comply with in order to maintain your valuable rights.

Can I File a Workers’ Compensation Claim Without a Lawyer?
Handling a case yourself without proper legal training can be like navigating through a minefield. There are many traps and potential pitfalls if you don’t have legal training and expertise in this area of the law, all of which must be successfully handled in order to maximize the value of your claim. This includes complying with certain notification requirements to avoid losing your right to bring a claim altogether. The applicable laws can also change based on the size of your employer, the jurisdiction of the incident, and more. Insurance companies employ adjusters who are trained to delay, minimize, or even deny your claim. There could also be additional avenues of compensation in addition to your employer, depending on your case’s unique circumstances.
We advise talking with a lawyer about your claim as soon as possible to maximize your financial compensation.
