Hello - I am assuming you have been receiving medical care through the workers compensation system. A disability rating is assigned to you either by your authorized treating physician or a functional capacity evaluator. It is the percentage loss of body part due to work injury. It entitles you to financial recovery. I am happy to answer further questions. Nate Hansford 770-922-3660. Located in Atlanta. Thank you!
You definitely need to consult with a medical malpractice attorney regarding this issue. I only handle worker's compensation matters but could direct you to someone who is a specialist. The medical malpractice laws in Georgia do favor the doctors from my limited knowledge. Best of luck.
I agree with the other attorneys' responses. You definitely need representation. Workers compensation laws in each state differ. You need someone who understands GA workers laws. Unfortunately, you are not entitled to pain and suffering under the GA workers compensation act. However, you can file a hearing request for income and medical benefits. Feel free to contact me further. 770-922-3660 Good luck.

You are entitled to 24 weeks of TTD benefits for this rating. I always like to get a second opinion on PPD ratings as this could be a low number. Are you presently working now? Are you receiving income benefits? There are alot of factors that go into settlement of a claim. Please contact our offices at 770-922-3660 for a free consultation to discuss further.
I agree with much of what the other attorneys have. You are entitled to workers 'compensation benefits as you were injured on the job. You may also be entitled to a third party claim if the injury was caused by someone other than a co-worker of the temp agency. You definitely need medical care and may need to take the insurance company who insures the temp agency to court. Good luck and feel free to contact with questions. 770-922-3660 Nate Hansford. I wish you the best of luck.
I believe you are entitled to recovery under the workers compensation system; however, the workers compensation insurance company may deny your claim. You were out of town on a company paid trip. You were in the course and scope of employment. Please fell free to call me to discuss further. Nate Hansford 770-922-3660. Thanks!
Were you hurt on the job? This may be more of en employment law matter. You may want to take this up with you human resources. With regard to workers compensation, the state and federal laws are vastly different and so is your recovery. I would consult with a Federal attorney regarding your wages. Good luck.
