If you have suffered a serious injury at work, you should speak with an experienced Atlanta workers' comp lawyer. A workplace injury suffered in an accident or because of repetitive stress can result in serious financial hardship for the victim during medical recovery.
In the state of Georgia, most injured workers have the right to make a claim for medical treatment and wage benefits through their employer's workers' compensation insurance provider. In return, employers are protected from further liability for compensating the injured employee. Unfortunately, many employers and their insurance carriers make the workers' comp claims process difficult or work aggressively to deny workers' comp benefits altogether.

Get The Workers' Comp Benefits You Are Entitled To — When You Need Them
I have helped thousands of workers and their families secure the appropriate level of workers' comp benefits they are entitled to, including:
- Medical treatment: Injured workers are entitled to receive paid medical treatment from an approved health care provider. Money is paid directly to the provider, with no co-pays or deductibles required from the injured worker.
- Temporary total disability: Weekly cash payments during the time you are unable to work because of your injury or illness
- Temporary partial disability: Weekly cash payments to supplement your income if you return to work at a reduced earning capacity
- Permanent partial disability: Cash payments to cover the amount of reduced earning capacity resulting from your partial disability. Under certain conditions, you may also receive a lump-sum payment for the cash value of the benefit.
Initial Workers' Comp Claims And Workers' Comp Appeals
Statistically, a significant number of initial workers' comp claims are denied, often because of missing information or a mistake your employer made. I have seen every tactic used by employers and insurance providers to deny or delay workers' comp benefits. If you have had your initial workers' comp claim denied, call me to discuss the circumstances. I will work hard to move your claim through the process quickly.
