If you have been injured at work in Georgia, Help Begins Here.

Your employer does not fully understand workers' comp and they cannot provide you all of the information you need to make good decisions after an injury.  Most companies are more concerned about their insurance premiums increasing than your injury.  There are even some companies that systematically ignore employees reporting injuries.  

Your problems do not stop there.  Even after your claim has been opened, the insurance company will take over, and they are often less trustworthy than your employer.  Insurance will frequently deny medical procedures and look for reasons to avoid paying you for your lost earnings. 

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?  

These situations happen everyday in Georgia.  

Here's a piece of good news:  I handle cases like this every day and there is no charge to call me right now for a free consultation.  Pick up the phone and call.  It's just that easy.

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.

A great person
Mr. Woody is a great person to begin with. He did everything he could to totally inform, educate, and create the best possible way for me to be victorious. Worker's compensation cases are stressful, to say that least. I was hurt on-the-job, working for a major corporation. My case was a bit far-fetched because the injury happened a few years back. Mr. Woody found a successful way for me to recover some of my losses. He also informed me of everything that may happen during this process. As a result, I am in a much better place than I was 9 months ago when I called him. I give Nathan an A+!

Personable and Trustworthy!
Nathan helped me a couple of years ago. He always had my best interest as his top priority. He communicated everything very clearly, and made the difficult process easy to understand without ever talking down to me. I would highly recommend Nathan to anyone needing an attorney with expertise in Worker's compensation.

Forever grateful
Nathan was excellent. We thought it would be a long drawn out process, but when Nathan took my fiance's case he had won the settlement for her against her employer in just a few months. He was so good, the lawyers for her employer even agreed with him that the company was in the wrong.

The best attorney that I have ever met !
He is an excellent worker's compensation attorney.He handled my father's case and we were very greatful to have him as an attorney.Mr.Woody treats your case as if it was his own .We actually found Mr.Woody online and he agreed to drive four hours to meet with us quite often .

Very thankful, highly recommend!
When I count my blessings, I always think of Mr. Woody. I worked for a major grocery store chain in Atlanta for nearly thirty years when I injured my back on the job. Even though the company provided medical treatment and tried to assist me in getting back to work, in the end, I just wasn't able to do that type of heavy lifting any more. Mr. Woody helped guide me through the workers' comp process, make smart plans for my future, and he got me a settlement which allowed me to partially retire so that I would not have to work so hard the last few years of my career. He was truly a blessing!!
