Workers' Compensation
In Georgia, employers enjoy immunity from lawsuits brought by injured workers. In return, Georgia workers injured on the job are entitled to benefits without regard to fault. This arrangement does not mean, however, that defenses to workers' compensation claims are not available to employers. If you have been injured on the job and do not know what your next step should be, call us. We have the experience and knowledge to get you all of the benefits - whether they be medical, indemnity, or permanency - you are owed.

 

We handle all manner of workers' compensation claims, including claims for bodily injury, death claims, and catastrophic injury claims. Insurance companies want to close your workers' compensation claim as quickly as possible, whether it's the right time for you to return to work or not. You should feel sure that you have received all necessary medical treatment before attempting to return to any job. We will never resolve your claim before the time is right for you.

If issues arise that require litigation, we are ready. Georgia's workers' compensation system provides for evidentiary hearings conducted before an administrative law judge, and these hearings require an experienced trial attorney to handle them properly. We make sure that your case is handled with quickness, competence and efficiency.
