    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

    If you were returned to work under a light duty return to work job, you have a 15 day trial work period to see if you are able to do the job. I would recommend that you make an appointment to see your doctor and get him to take you out of work. As you are within the 15 days, your benefits should immediately begin again. I would also make my attorney aware of this. Even though you can fire your attorney, this is a critical juncture of your case and I would suggest that you do everything...

    Yes I do. The permanent partial disability rating will be part of the total settlement. Other factors include future lost wage benefits that could be owed and potential future medical costs. Be aware that you will most likely have to sign a Letter of Resignation if you settle your case. You will not have to resign if you just get the money for the disability rating. I think that this is a time when you would definitely want to discuss your case with a lawyer. Call me at 404-523-6100...

    Unfortunately, in Georgia, there is no law against retaliatory discharge. That means that you have no protection from being fired after you have filed a WC suit. Although your WC attorney is correct that your employer will want you to waive your rights to bring any other case against them when you settle your WC case, your WC attorney should insist that you will not settle your WC case if you have to give up your rights to pursue your EEOC case. Your WC attorney should protect you so...

    As the other attorneys have stated, a workers' compensation settlement is not taxable. I would check with your attorney or an accountant regarding the employment case. Good luck. Tom Holder 4045236100

    I am not quite sure of your question. The 5 % rating will generate 15 weeks of benefits. A benefit week is how much you receive when you were out on workers' compensation. If you think the rating is too low, you can visit a doctor of your choosing one time while the insurance company pays. He might give you a higher rating. Good luck. Tom Holder 404-523-6100
