Understanding Georgia’s Workers’ Compensation System
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 injury must be handled under the Georgia workers’ compensation laws.
Types Of Workplace Injuries
Workplace injuries can vary greatly. If you work in an industrial job, you could be at risk for many different injuries, including chemical burns or infections. Hazardous duties can result in potentially catastrophic injuries such as the following:
- Head or brain injuries
- Spine injuries
- Back injuries, including herniated disks
- Shoulder injuries such as a torn rotator cuff or labrum
- Knee injuries
- Repetitive stress injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome
- Sprains and strains to the neck or back
- Broken bones
If you have been denied medical treatment, denied benefits or the insurance company is delaying payment to you, do not hesitate to contact The Law Offices of T. Andrew Miller, LLC, in Atlanta. 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.
What Does Workers’ Compensation Cover?
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.
The law provides you with compensation for any injury you sustain while doing your job. If you have been denied workers’ compensation benefits, contact The Law Offices of T. Andrew Miller, LLC, 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
Dealing with your employer or the insurance company can be difficult. An experienced Georgia workers’ compensation lawyer can guide you and fight for the benefits you deserve.
