Workers' Compensation Claim Services For Injured Workers Throughout Georgia

On-the-job injuries are as diverse as the workplaces in which they occur. Not all injuries occur in an industrial setting or by way of an accident or single traumatic event. In fact, an increasing percentage of on-job-injuries occur over time through repetitive movements or long-term exposure to certain conditions. Sometimes, these injuries can be difficult to prove. If your employer denies you benefits for your on-the-job injury or condition, attorney Gary M. Kazin may be able to help. Many Atlanta workers' compensation attorneys recognize him as a leader in the field.

Catastrophic Injuries

A catastrophic injury such as paralysis, traumatic brain injury or loss of limb will have a lifetime impact on the worker and family members. We will handle every detail of your claim to help you obtain the full extent of medical treatment and disability wage benefits you are entitled to. If you suffered a permanent disability, we can even help you receive a lump sum payment for the total amount of money you would receive over your lifetime of workers' compensation benefits.

Musculoskeletal Injuries

Muscle and joint injuries can occur on the job over time or through a single traumatic episode. While an injury such as a broken bone or torn ligament easily shows up on medical tests, the existence of other soft tissue injuries may be difficult to prove. Some employers or insurance carriers may take this opportunity to deny you benefits despite your discomfort and pain. When this happens, it may take expert medical evidence to get the benefits you deserve.

Repetitive Stress Injuries

Repetitive stress injuries such as carpal tunnel or tendonitis are more common in an office work environment, but can also occur in an industrial setting. Normally these injuries develop in workers who engage in repetitive movements such as typing or packing throughout the majority of their workdays. Because these injuries do not stem from an identifiable incident, they can sometimes be difficult to prove. However, a seasoned Georgia workers' compensation attorney has the knowledge and resources to establish the existence of these injuries and get you fair compensation.

Head Injuries

Traumatic head injuries often carry consequences that are not immediately apparent. Even if diagnosed and treated, these injuries can get worse over time and manifest in unexpected ways down the road. When additional symptoms develop, it can be difficult to tie those symptoms to the original head injury. That is why it is important to consult a skilled workers' compensation attorney following an on-the-job head injury. An attorney can ensure that you receive the benefits to which you are entitled by law and can fully document your injury in case complications arise later.

Respiratory Conditions

Occupational diseases are conditions caused by long-term exposure to certain environmental hazards. Among more common occupational diseases are respiratory conditions caused by particulates or other air contamination in the work environment. Some examples include asbestosis and mesothelioma. These conditions are such a common problem that Georgia workers' compensation laws address them specifically.
