Here’s how we may be able to help you win.
The Workers’ Compensation program is designed to provide benefits for people who have been injured while working their jobs. But, for a variety of reasons, it’s sometimes difficult to collect proper compensation.
Our job is to step in and help you when benefits are delayed or denied.
The bottom line – if you have been injured on-the job in Georgia, you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. These benefits include compensation for lost wages and medical expenses, as well as temporary or permanent disability resulting from your work injury. Common injuries include:
• Back & Neck Injuries
• Knee & Joint Injuries
• Broken Bones
• Hearing Loss
• Electrical Burns
• Construction Accidents
Specifically, we can step in to help when you can answer “yes” to any of the questions below.
Has your Worker’s Compensation claim been denied?
Sometimes an employer or insurance company will claim an injury is not work-related. We can help you establish the cause of the injury, helping you get the medical benefits and lost wages you deserve.
Have your benefits discontinued?
The insurance carrier may be claiming you are no longer injured and should return to work. Or maybe they’re saying your disability is permanent and, therefore, you should be covered by Social Security Disability. We can help you establish that your work disability is temporary, that your discontinued benefits should be restored, and that your medical bills need to be paid. Now.
Is your employer trying to send you back to work too soon?
Often, employers and insurance companies want to send injured workers back to work before they are fully recovered. We’ll help make sure you get the medical attention and follow-up treatment you need, and are not sent back to work before you’re ready to work again.
Was your work-related injury caused by defective equipment?
Sometimes, malfunctioning or defective equipment is involved in a workplace accident. If that’s the case with you, you may have a separate products liability claim that can be made against the manufacturer.
