    I agree with my colleagues that you generally have a year from the date of your accident to file a workers' compensation claim with the Georgia State Board of Workers' Compensation. However, if you have received income or medical benefits under this claim, you may have additional time to file a claim and seek benefits. The fact that you no longer work for the company does not in itself bar your claim. However, if your current job aggravated your back problems, you may have to bring a...

    Employers/Insurers request resignation (or voluntary retirement) generally with all settlements to reduce their future exposure. If an injured employee were to settle a workers' compensation claim without resigning and then re-injure the same body part, the employee could file a new workers' compensation claim. Also, depending on the type of injury, some employees have an increased risk of re-injury (e.g back injury cases). As you can see, your Employer wants to cut their losses and close...

    Yes, they can reduce your pay. Your remedy is temporary partial disability benefits, which pays 2/3 of the difference between your pre and post injury wages. You can receive a maximum of $334.00 per week. You can receive TPD benefits for up to 350 weeks from the date of your accident, assuming your work situation remains the same. Please let me know if you have any additional questions or if I can be of further assistance. Sincerely, Betti Rosszer Klob Law Firm 770-554-8100 betti@...

    Child support could technically take the entire settlement, but they rarely take more than half. Your attorney can show them how much of the settlement will be used for medical expenses, which may help decrease the amount they take. An agreement between you and the mother is not binding, CSS decides on the dollar figure. But it is helpful to get your ex on your side. Sincerely, Betti Rosszer

    Thank you for your question. You can bring a WC claim against the temp agency. You are entitled to free medical treatment and income benefits for your lost wages. You can get WC benefits even if they let you go. I recommend that you obtain medical care as soon as possible to avoid any permanent nerve damage. I hope this answer was helpful and I wish you the best with your claim. If you have any additional questions or concerns, please let me know. Betti Rosszer Klob Law Firm 770-...

    Scarring alone will not entitle you to workers' compensation benefits. There is no compensation for pain, suffering, or embarrasement in Ga workers'' compensation. However, if the scars limit you physically, you can ask for additional treatment and possibly for an impairment rating. You may also be able to show psychological injuries from the scarring and seek benefits that way. You shold consult an experienced attorney to determine whether either scenario applies to your case. If you have...

    The answer will likely come after the deposing attorney prepared his report and had a chance to consult with the claims adjuster. Your testimony may result in extended discovery, because they may have to request records from additional medical providers. They will probably want their own doctor to evaluate your claim. Talk to your attorney to find out what time frame you can expect. Wishing you the best with your claim, Betti Rosszer

    If at all possible, file a claim in a state other than Texas because their benefits in that state are extremely limited. You should consult an attorney in all possible jurisdictions and decide which state provides the maximum benefit. Betti Rosszer Klob Law Firm

    You do not need to sign a release to return to work for your employer. I recommend that you try full duty work to make sure you are truly capable of doing your old job. If you are not, return to the doctor and explain why you cannot do the job and ask him to assign appropriate restrictions until you fully recover. Also, you may want to think about doing an independent medical evaluation before you close or settle your claim. If you have any further questions, l would be glad to help. I...

    In Georgia, most cases get resolved prior to the hearing date. After discovery is completed (i.e., medical reports are obtained, depositions are taken, etc.), the parties have more information to decide on how to proceed with the case. In some instances, the entire claim settles, while in others the parties work out the issue(s) in litigation and the claim continues. Resolution prior to a hearing is generally preferred because it takes a long time for a case to go through the court system....
