On-The-Job Injuries And Workers’ Comp: Determining Your Claim
In Georgia, you cannot sue your employer for an injury, but you may be able to collect benefits and financial compensation for injuries incurred due to the negligence of another person or organization while on the job. The amount of compensation depends on the severity of the injuries and the circumstances of the accident. If you or a loved one is suffering from serious or catastrophic injuries or have been involved in an accident involving a third party, you will need a lawyer’s help. This is where we step in.
It is important to know that while you have the ability to file a claim on your own, working with an attorney will improve the chances that your claim is approved and that you get the maximum amount of benefits available. Our workers’ compensation attorneys will provide a thorough explanation of the legal issues involved in your claim and file the initial claim application on your behalf.
In addition to initial applications, we handle denied claims and appeals. If you have been denied benefits, we will re-evaluate your application and determine if amendments can be made that would leverage your appeal. The attorneys at our firm are highly experienced at handling denied claims and have handled appeals on every level.
