WORKERS' COMPENSATION

 

Laws passed by the state of Georgia require that your employer, or your employer's insurance company, compensate you, or your family, for injuries or death that may occur while you are working . You may be entitled to weekly benefits while you are permanently or temporarily totally disabled and unable to work, payment of your medical expenses , and/or weekly payments or a lump sum payment for partial or total disability resulting from a work related injury. If you are injured while working, you should report the injury immediately to your employer. Your Georgia employer is required to carry insurance that covers your medical bills and replaces a portion of your wages when a workplace accident or occupational injury prevents you from returning to work.

Employers often do not explain the rights of injured workers. We represent a range of clients including autoworkers, construction workers, skilled tradesmen, nurses, hospital workers, administrative and support staff, truck drivers, construction workers, salesmen, nurses and warehouse workers.

We settle your case only when it is in your best interest. We care about our clients' well-being and are committed to providing injured and disabled workers with the quality legal services they deserve.
