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!

Cate Powell and her team did excellent job at getting me the help I needed. They referred me to a great medical facility for treatment. Any questions I had was met with a quick response and I was always up to date on what was happening. They made the process as easy as possible for me. I would highly recommend using Cate Powell with montlick and associates.

When it comes to personal injuries being handled with upmost quality care, professionalism and determination to resolve all legal woes quickly and successfully. I'll be the first in a very long line of satisfied customers to say that Monica Pearson, (one of Atlanta's great Black female broadcast journalists and the first, former WSB-TV evening anchor at Channel 2 Action News) who I truly admire was right on the money (meaning trustworthy) for informing all victims of negligence to seek legal help from a proven law firm such as Montlick & Associates, who I call the best of the best LEGAL STRONG ARMS in the personal injury business!I'm a client of this wonderful establishment who truly took care of all my needs relating to my unfortunate accident, all due to a distracted driver who paid dearly for his poor driving ability.In saying that, I must recognize two important people at the firm. One is legal assistant Amber Starks (a marvelous paralegal) who kept my spirit up while I dealt with my personal recovery. Amber Starks is fantastic person to know, and second is my attorney, the incredible Nick Vocino. I call him a "legal eagle battling ram" for the underdog against vicious insurance companies. He's terrific! Nick "The Battle Ram" Vocino is "no joke" when it comes to him protecting his clients, he's fabulous! And last but also first is the entire staff at Montlick, who made me feel like one of their family members, just splendid! Alright people, I stated I was recognizing two, but I ended up acknowledging four. Monica Pearson, Amber Starks, Nick Vocino and the staff at Montlick; thank you for all that you have done and still do. All of you have earned my respect and deserve a round of applause from your clients. Ladies & gentlemen, I appreciate you for a job well done. Many blessings I send to you.

Amber and Nick have been an outstanding team. They guided me through the legal process after my accident and always kept me up-to-date with progress on my case. Amber was always available to answer any questions, and was so polite and professional. Both Nick and Amber really did an amazing job of making me feel like I was their priority. Thanks so much to both of you!

Fighting for Families of Wrongful Death Victims Nationwide 

What To Know About a Construction Wrongful Death Claim

A construction death claim may involve two cases pursued simultaneously: a workers’ compensation claim and a wrongful death claim against the negligent parties. 

Depending on applicable state law, construction accident victims might be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. In the event of a wrongful death from a construction or work injury, dependents may be able to pursue a separate personal injury claim against negligent individuals or companies who are responsible. The various legal systems are complex to navigate and can feel overwhelming to those who just lost a loved one.

We’ll Pursue ALL Avenues of Compensation for Our Clients

When Should I File for a Wrongful Death Claim?

Generally, the statute of limitations is two years for filing a wrongful death claim. We understand that entering a legal process may be the furthest thing from your mind when a loved one is lost. Let us do the fighting for you, so you can get the peace-of-mind you deserve.

Start Now

While the workers’ compensation benefits may help bridge a gap, there may be a negligent party or parties responsible for the wrongful death of a family member. In these situations, we will work to hold those parties accountable. A wrongful death suit may help to recover medical expenses, lost future wages, pain and suffering, and potentially punitive damages. Each case is different, so please call us at 1-800-LAW-NEED to take advantage of our free consultation.

What To Expect

  • Our consultations are always compassionate, confidential, and free
  • Unlike other firms where you might speak with an assistant or paralegal, at Montlick you will speak with an attorney who is qualified to advise you on your legal options.
  • We will keep you informed about your case every step of the way.
  • We will always act in our client’s best interest.

What is a Wrongful Death Action?

If a family member suffers a wrongful death at the construction site caused by someone else’s negligence, our attorneys pursue all types of compensation to which our clients are entitled by law. In these situations, there may be one or a few negligent parties. These can include general contractors, subcontractors, construction site owners, equipment manufacturers and more.

When negligence wrongly robs someone of a loved one, our attorneys fight to recover the following types of damages, among others:

  • Past, present, and future medical expenses
  • Past, present, and future lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of consortium (if applicable)
  • Punitive damages, depending on the egregiousness of the defendant’s conduct
  • Funeral and burial expenses
