Just Injured?

workers compensation injury GeorgiaIf you have been injured on the job, you cannot and should not sit back and wait for your employer to “do the right thing.”   Once your employer and their insurance company determine that you have or may have a workers’ compensation claim, you will be treated as a “claim number” rather than as a person.  This may be difficult and unpleasant to accept, but it is the truth.  Next to divorce and child support cases, workers’ compensation claims are the most hotly contested and adversarial areas of Georgia law.

Below you will find links to brief articles I have written and videos I have recorded for recently injured workers about:

  • what constitutes proper notice
  • how to notify the State Board about your claim
  • retaliation or hostility from your employer

If you have any questions about how to proceed or if you just need general advice about Georgia workers’ compensation law, please do not hesitate to call me at 770-351-0801 or email me by clicking on this link.
