    If you had a hands down case, the insurance company would have already accepted your case. You are playing a game for which you do not know the rules. Hire an attorney. It's worth the fee.

    That is incorrect. A claim must be filed within one year from the date of the injury, so you are definitely within the time period. You may even have more time to file a claim because you have received authorized medical care. I would encourage you to immediately obtain legal counsel. We are 404-523-6100 if you want to discuss this matter further.

    I would highly recommend that you contact an attorney who represents employers and insurers in workers' compensation cases. Even though you would have to pay an hourly rate for the attorney, you are now in the workers' compensation system. You will need someone to help guide you through the process and minimize your losses.

    This is a question for which you must speak with an attorney. Rules about jurisdiction can be very involved. Your question cannot be answered without more specific information. Tom Holder 404-523-6100

    You need to be out of work for seven days. You can then recover two-thirds of your average weekly wage up to $525/wk. If you return on a part time basis, you can get two-thirds of the difference up to $350/wk. You will also be eligible for benefits for your disability rating, which you will receive once your doctor says that you are as good as you are going to get. Our website, www.longandholder.com, has a lot of basic information that should be of help to you. Good luck. Tom Holder 404-...

    Yes you can. Your company was on notice that you were injured while on their job. I would suggest that you contact the doctor who you saw previously about scheduling am appointment. That doctor will probably want to get your visit authorized by the insurance company before he sees you, so you will have to contact the insurance company. If you are told the visit will not be authorized you will need an attorney to help you. Good luck.

    They are open to the public. However, I would highly encourage you to hire an attorney if you are going to a hearing. There are many rules and procedures that lawyers spend years learning. You would be playing a game that has rules that you do not know.

    You need to find out from your attorney why your checks stopped. They should not have just stopped without a better explanation. In over payment situations, the weekly checks can be reduced by a small amount to pay off the over payment. I would also discuss the value of your case with your attorney. Good luck.

    Unfortunately, there are very few attorneys who will take a case on appeal because it is extremely difficult to get a decision reversed. As far as continuing medical, it would depend on the wording of the decision. Your prior attorney should help your brother understand the ramifications of the decision. I wish you good luck.

    I am sorry that your family is having so much trouble because of your husband's injury. On top of having to deal with your injured husband, the financial strain of the reduced income provided by workers' compensation creates hardships for many families. Unfortunately, loss of consortium claims are not allowed in workers' compensation. Those are the claims that spouses have in personal injury cases. The law, in personal injury cases, recognizes that the spouses of injured people are also...
