Injured at work in Georgia? Help Begins Here.
Your employer does not fully understand the workers' comp process. This means they will not offer you all of the information or options you need to get treated appropriately. Also, many companies are more worried about their insurance premiums increasing than the welfare of their employees. Those companies will simply try to brush your injury under the rug.
Your problems do not stop there. Even after your claim has been opened, the insurance company will take over, and they are even less trustworthy. They frequently deny medical treatment you need and they look for any reason to avoid paying you for lost time.
Of course, even if you receive some basic relief from workers' compensation, you may find that your company treats you like a second class citizen after your injury. Does it seem like they are looking for a reason to fire you?
Or, after initially providing some medical care, the insurance company may choose to deny a referral to another doctor. Or, they will send you to a doctor who they know will say you're "OK", when there is no way they can go back to work.
These situations happen everyday in Georgia workers' comp cases.
Here's the good news: these cases are my bread and butter. I handle situations like this every day and there is no charge to call me right now for a free consultation.
I have handled hundreds of workers' compensation cases in Georgia over the last decade and I spent the first years of my career working for insurance companies. I am very familiar with how they handle cases. Let me put my insider knowledge to work for you.
If you have been injured on the job, call me right now and let's get your case on the right track.
