  • Is it common practice in Georgia for an insurance company's attorney write the decision for the Judge in a Workman's Comp case ?

    Judge's decision does not reflect demeanor at trial- sounds like brief from Insurance company attorney- personal attack on claimant & lots of misinformation.

    Michael’s Answer

    No, the opposing counsel didn't write the ALJ's award, but the ALJ may have borrowed some language from that attoney's brief or may have chosen to believe the arguments made by the opposing counsel instead of your counsel's.

    Sorry your hearing did not go well; see if your attorney thinks you have grounds to appeal.

  • What should I do now??

    I had a finger tore off at work and was told not to file it under workmans comp or they would shut the business down .

    Michael’s Answer

    I would file it anyway. Assuming there is comp insurance, it doesn't matter if the company shuts down, but that's probably a lie anyway.

    Your attorney should tell you. If you don't have one, you can check with the State Board or the adjuster to see.
    Afterward, make sure they pay in 20 days, or you get an extra 20%.

    It takes a week or two for the State Board of Workers' Compensation to approve the stipulation. Then, they will pay you within 20 days to avoid a penalty.

    Michael’s Answer

    They want you to kill your case by requesting a regular duty release? Don't do that. And don't ever lie to your doctor. Sounds like a great employer you have!
