    Short answer, no. You cannot be forced to undergo invasive surgery. Having surgery (or not) does not control your right or entitlement to benefits. Your ongoing entitlement to benefits is controlled by your disability status. If you are receiving income benefits or have in the past 120 days, you are entitled to your own independent medical examination. I suggest you contact a workers' compensation attorney and obtain additional counseling on your rights. Best of luck.

    Yes. They are open to the public. That said, I strongly encourage you to retain counsel. There are rules of evidence that govern your hearing. Equally, there are procedures unique to the workers' compensation system. A skilled attorney would best represent your interests.

    First, it is unfortunate and, yet, common to have your employer fail to comply with the workers' compensation system. That said, no . . . there is no entitlement to pain and suffering. Regardless, there is compensation available. No doubt, a skilled workers' compensation attorney can assist you in your claim.

    Yes you can. As your health is top priority, seek medical attention from the ER that treated you previously. Also, you could contact your former employer and request a copy of their physician's panel. From there, select a doctor. If these options do not work, contact a workers' compensation attorney. Best of luck.

    Absolutely. You have a workers' compensation claim against your employer. At the same time, you have a personal injury claim against the 3rd party (temp agency). Best of luck!

    No one could predict the value of your claim without more information. Before the value stage, you first need to address your injuries. If you are not receiving medical treatment and you are not receiving income benefits, you need to immediately consult a workers' compensation lawyer.

    Under Georgia law, you may revoke your settlement agreement up to the time that the State Board of Workers' Compensation approves the settlement. Not resigning is totally understandable and your decision. Call your lawyer today and immediately and expressly revoke your agreement to settle.

    You will find a lawyer. Have faith. A newer lawyer may be more inclined to take your case. Don't give up. There are options for recovery beyond an insurance policy.

    True. There is no pain and suffering. However, a skilled Workers' Compensation lawyer can ensure that you receive all entitled benefits including: medical, permanent partial disability, temporary partial disability, and temporary total disability. The latter 3 all encompass compensation directly to you. Absent a skilled lawyer, rest assured, your employer and their insurance carrier will do all they can to minimize your benefits. With an attorney, those benefits can be maximized. That...

    It is not a legal conflict. That said, it is YOUR claim. If you are not comfortable with the past relationship, you do not have to stay with your current attorney. Equally, if you are not comfortable with your attorney's recommendations, you can move on and retain counsel that better fits your interests. Good luck!
