Workers who are injured while on the job in Georgia are often eligible for workers compensation benefits either temporarily or permanently, depending on the injury. State and federal workers’ compensation plans are intended to provide employees with the support they need after an injury on the job. This includes such things as payments for medical expenses and payments to make up for the loss of income when the worker cannot return to work for a period of time or permanently. When this occurs, families can often suffer greatly particularly when the injured person supports the family fully or partially. The worry and concern about their loved one is compounded when the worry involves paying the bills, rent, mortgage or buying food. This is a very real issue for those who have been injured on the job, because receiving benefits can involve some challenges.
Although getting benefits after a workplace injury should be simple, unfortunately often it isn’t simple. That is because often the benefits that are provided are not enough to make the injured worker whole. Also insurance companies that cover injured workers through their employment often seek to diminish the severity or the length of time the injured worker has to recover in order to pay less for the injury. Often the doctors who routinely work for workers' compensation insurance carriers minimize the pain and suffering a patient is experiencing. This can become a serious issue for the injured worker, not only because he or she may be forced back to work too soon, but can make recover more difficult if the treatment is insufficient for the injury involved.
The best way to ensure that a worker is fully protected after an injury while on the job is to retain an experienced lawyer as soon as possible. Scholle Law is a team of experienced Georgia injury lawyers who practice in the Atlanta metro area and help workers recover the benefits to which they are entitled from workers’ compensation insurance carriers and other potentially responsible parties. In addition to ensuring that the insurance company and their doctors provide the appropriate support to injured workers, we may also file what is called third-party negligence claims when someone other than the employer is at fault for the injury.Get Legal Advice for Your Workers’ Compensation Claim
