    Michael’s Answer

    I would at least talk to one. Otherwise, expect to be jerked around by the adjuster for as long as his case stays open. There are several good workers' comp lawyers near Dalton.

    No, it's based on the date of injury. If you're hurt on or after July 1 and you're OK.

    My foot got broke in two places while on the job. They just sit me in a chair with paper to write down when they doff a machine. They won't pay me for loss time when I have to leave early to go to the doctor. It's really hard for me to get around ...

    Michael’s Answer

    Yes, sort of. More details are needed, so I would call a local attorney to help you with all this.

  • Is a workers comp settlement public record or visible in a background check in Georgia between the individual and insurance co.

    The settlement was between the individual and the workers comp insurance company.

    Michael’s Answer

    Michael’s Answer

    You should probably retain counsel and file a hearing request, since the adjuster is ignoring you. She probably hopes you will give up and go away.

    Yes, in theory, but if you're a military cadet, that's a "different animal" from GA workers' comp law.

    Michael’s Answer

    You should talk to an attorney asap. Don't trust the neurosurgeon the insurer is sending you to. Do not take their offer without advice from an expert!

    As for the resignation, 95% of the time, that's the only way to get the other side to settle with you.
