Workers Compensation

About Me

If you have been injured on the job, you can find help here.  In Georgia, getting relief from workers' compensation can be very difficult.  Often, after an on-the-job injury, Employers and their Insurance Companies do not want to provide Employees the benefits required by the law.  Even those who have received some relief from workers' compensation find that their Employer treats them like a second class citizen after their injury.  Or, the Inusrance Company will deny medical treatment recommended by their doctor.  Still others are sent to doctors who are specifically selected by the company to say that they are "OK", even though there is no way they can go back to work or life as usual.  


Unfortunately, none of this is made better by the fact that the workers' compensation system in Georgia is filled with rules, regulations and deadlines that are unknown to everyday folks on the street.  Unless you practice Georgia Workers' Compensation Law day in and day out in Georgia, you simply will not know how to access all the benefits available to you and get the most out of your case.  


If you have been injured on the job, the right lawyer will make the difference.  Get a workers' compensation specialist.  I have handled hundreds of workers' compensation cases in Georgia over the last ten years.  In fact, I spent the first years of my career working for insurance companies.  I know the way they handle cases and what it takes to keep them honest.  Let me put my insider knowledge to work for you. If you have been injured on the job, call me, and let's get your case on the right track.

  • Timothy Minthorn Klob

    Nathan Woody is a detail-oriented, experienced, and well-respected workers' compensation attorney. I have worked with Nathan in the past, and have had cases where he has been my opponent since I launched my own practice, and have always found him to be an extremely competent and capable attorney who adheres to the highest professional and ethical standards. Nathan enjoys broad and positive industry recognition on both sides of workers' compensation bar throughout Georgia, both due to his proven track record of success and experience in progressively challenging positions, as well as his ability to consistently treat all parties involved in the litigation process with the utmost respect. I was pleased to recently learn that Nathan intended to open his own practice representing injured workers, and am confident that he will be a success due to his ability to provide his clients the highest level of representation and his industry-wide reputation for honesty, ethics, and integrity.
