    Unfortunately, Georgia is a Right to Work state. That means that your company can fire you at any time. I would encourage you to hire an attorney at this point. You will need help with settling your case at some point. As you will not be returning to your job, there is not reason not to settle the case. I am sorry that you lost your job. That is not an uncommon occurrence for people who are out of work because of an on the job injury. Good luck. Tom Holder 404-523-6100

    We need a little more information to answer your question properly. Did the doctor send you back to work with restrictions? Then the company should make sure that you are not working outside of your restrictions, for example, not making you lift more than you can. If the doctor returned you to work without restrictions, the doctor is saying that you can do anything and you have a much more difficult situation. I would recommend that you get a second opinion from another doctor on the panel,...

    You are allowed one switch to another doctor on the Panel of Physicians. I believe that this change will count as your one switch. I would recommend against this, however. I would be wary of switching to another doctor in the same group. If you want to switch to another Panel Physician, I would recommend that you go to a different medical group altogether. Good luck.

    Unfortunately, most attorneys will not take cases on appeal as it is very hard to get a case reversed. I am sorry that things did not work out better for you.

    You need to discuss this with a lawyer as your question needs a much more complex answer than this reply could give. If you were out of work completely when you were laid off, you will continue to get benefits. If you were working on restricted duty, than you could be eligible for benefits, but you will have to immediately start looking for a job. If you were on light duty but the company could not provide you with a job that met your restrictions, you will continue to get benefits....

    It is hard to know why the workers' compensation insurance company has not accepted the claim. Very often, claims are accepted at the last minute. As far as the medical is concerned, an attorney should look at the medical reports to find out exactly why the elbow injury has not been looked at. I am sorry that your brother is having such a hard time. An attorney can help him and I recommend that he hire one, if he has not done so already. Tom Holder 404-523-6100

    First of all, workers' comp does include the medical benefits which you are seeking. I would ask to see a company doctor, which is one step of medical care over the nurse. Workers' compensation will provide the medical care for free. Another choice would be to go back to the nurse if he continues to have problems and get her to refer him to a company doctor. Any work restrictions will come from the doctor. Good luck. Tom Holder 404-523-6100
