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!

After a terrible accident, we turned to Ellen Forrester at Montlick for help with my mom's case. She walked us through everything step by step, handled the documentation and when it came time, her colleague, Mike Moran, and her represented my mom amazingly at mediation. While we are very happy with the settlement reached, this process was so much easier with their care and guidance. We will forever recommend them and Montlick to anyone.

Experienced Premises Liability Lawyers

We Know What it Takes to Win®

No one expects to suffer an accident when we leave our home, much less an accident experienced on somebody else’s property and because of their negligence. A property owner has a duty of care when you step onto their premises. When this duty of care is not honored and you become injured, your mental, emotional, physical, and financial state can all be impacted.

Property owners commonly allege that they are not at fault for what happened, and they often argue two theories as to why they should not be held liable. The defendant may argue that they were not aware of a hazard or that they did not have enough time to discover the hazard and remove it. Another common defense to premises liability claims is that the plaintiff was in some way responsible for the incident. In either situation, the victim is blamed and manipulated to believe that this was somehow their fault. Don’t be deceived — the start to justice begins with a call to Montlick.

Property owners and occupiers owe a duty to the public to keep their premises safe, and can be held liable if their failure to do so results in injuries, whether an injury occurs in a restaurant, store, or someone else’s home. Often, victims are left with severe injuries, costly medical care, lost income, disability, and pain and suffering when injured because of an unsafe condition on someone else’s property. When an injured plaintiff pursues a case against a property owner on the basis of their failure to keep their property safe, it is called a premises liability claim. Our attorneys handle cases involving all types of scenarios in which a property owner can be held accountable for negligence (some of which are particularly unique), but common causes of premises liability claims include the following:

  • Slippery and/or wet floors
  • Unmarked sudden drops in elevation
  • Illusions without proper warnings
  • Collapsing staircases, balconies, and outdoor patios
  • Poor lighting
  • Shocks/electrocutions
  • Structural defects known by a homeowner
  • Uncovered holes
  • Building fires
  • Gas leaks, including those that result in poisoning
  • Failure to adhere to applicable building codes
  • Unsecured falling objects
  • Unattended heavy machinery
  • Amusement park/carnival ride accidents
  • Malfunctioning elevators/escalators
  • Improperly aligned pathways and floors
  • Inadequate supervision
  • Unfenced swimming pools or other bodies of water
  • Negligent Security, in cases where property owners fail to take the appropriate steps to protect customers’ and/or tenants’ safety, and someone is severely injured or tragically killed because of an act of violence.

Slip, trip and fall accidents in particular are common bases for premises liability claims. However, each premises liability claim is unique and can affect people of all ages. As noted above, they can arise out of many scenarios and incidents, whether they be failure of a property owner to clean a spill, warn of a high voltage area, or prevent heavy objects, such as light fixtures or pieces of ceiling, from falling on someone’s head. Property owners and occupiers are also responsible, by way of example, for covering holes in the ground, obeying structural building codes and local ordinances, warning of known hazards, and even inspecting their property for less noticeable dangers. In negligent security cases, our firm pursues cases in which victims are physically assaulted, raped or tragically murdered when property owners fail to maintain adequate security when they are aware of a high probability or likelihood of violent crimes.
