    You definitely will need a workers' compensation attorney regarding this matter. You should be entitled to workers' compensation as Georgia is a no fault system. The termination is a separate matter that should not prohibit you from recovery. Feel free to contact me my office at 770-922-3660 to discuss. Best of luck.

    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.

    Nathaniel’s Answer

    If you are out of work and a doctor has disabled you from work, you are eligible for workers' compensation benefits. The insurance company does have 21 days to accept or deny the claim. Paying medical benefits alone does not constitute acceptance. Feel free to contact me directly to discuss further 770-922-3660. I have an office in Conyers and Atlanta.

  • I have been told by the doctor that I am partial permently disable at 8%. My back got injured and I want to settle.

    How much should I expect from a settlement if I am partial permanently disable from a back injury at 8%?

    Nathaniel’s Answer

    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 want to know what can I ask for in a workers compensation hearing since I can't ask for pain in sufffering?

    I don't have an attorney and don't want one but l would like to know what can I ask for as compensation for injury that happend on the job ? Can I ask for lost wages, future medical cost, compensation for injury....what type of compensation ?

    Nathaniel’s Answer

    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.
