Workers’ Compensation in Georgia

Have you experienced an accident at work which required medical attention or even a hospital stay?  Work injuries can range from minor scrapes and lacerations to head and spine injuries and even paralysis.  Each different on the job injury must be handled under the Georgia worker’s compensation laws.  If you have been denied medical treatment, denied benefits or the insurance company is delaying payment to you, do not hesitate to contact an experienced Atlanta worker’s compensation attorney.  Hiring an attorney relieves you of the pressure of dealing with claims adjusters in order to obtain the benefits you may be entitled to, and often results in a higher settlement to compensate you for your injuries.

Work Injuries

Workplace injuries can vary greatly depending on your line of work.  If you work in an industrial job, you could have suffered a number of difficult injuries such as a chemical burn or an infection. Often hazardous job duties result in potentially catastrophic injuries, such as the following:

  • Amputations
  • Head and Brain Injuries or Concussions
  • Spine Injuries or Paralysis
Other debilitating and disabling on the job injuries can include the following:
  • Back Injuries including Herniated Disc
  • Shoulder Injuries such as Torn Rotator Cuff or Labrum
  • Knee Injury including Torn Ligament or Meniscus
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome or other Repetitive Stress Injury
  • Sprains and Strains to the Neck or Lower Back
  • Broken Bones such as Foot, Ankle, Hand or Wrist
Workers’ Compensation Claims

If you have been injured in a work accident, you must report the injury to your employer.  If you have been injured while doing your job, you may be entitled to receive compensation for time out of work, along with a doctor’s care paid for by your employer.  It does not matter if you work in a hazardous field of work like construction or you work in an office at a desk.  Whether you work in a warehouse or all day at the airport, if you have been disabled by an on the job injury, you may be due weekly benefits payments to you or a cash settlement.

The law provides you with compensation for any injury you sustain while doing your job, but dealing with your employer or the insurance company after a work injury on your own can be difficult, time consuming and frustrating. An experienced Georgia worker’s compensation lawyer can help guide you through the process and fight for all benefits allowed under the law.

If you have been denied worker’s compensation benefits, contact an Atlanta work injury attorney today to discuss:

  • Medical treatment
  • Medical bills and expenses
  • Rehabilitation and therapy
  • Medication and assistive devices
  • Weekly cash benefits to compensate for lost time due to disability from your work injury
  • Potential lump sum cash settlement

If your situation has been portrayed by your employer or the insurance company as frivolous or minor, do not be discouraged!  If you or a loved one have suffered an injury that has disrupted your life and impacted your routine, it can often be difficult to obtain the benefits you deserve.  In your worker’s compensation claim, it is best to obtain the assistance of a skilled attorney to help you navigate the claim itself and determine the best course of action.  Insurance companies often fall behind in their worker’s compensation payments, which is unacceptable during a tragic event in your life.  You do not have time to wait around for payment or approval of doctor’s visits after a debilitating accident.  A worker’s compensation attorney can help you ensure that you receive the all compensation allowable under the law.

Injured workers also often encounter disputes with their employers after an on the job injury. Have you been fired from your job after sustaining work-related injury? Termination after a work accident may entitle you to weekly benefits, or this unfortunate situation may provide other potential legal action based on labor and employment law. Contact an experienced worker’s compensation attorney today to weigh your options.
