My practice focuses on assisting injured workers. Any employer in Georgia with three or more employees are required to carry workers' compensation insurance. If you are injured on the job, you are entitled to medical treatment to the extent necessary to get you back to work. If you are unable to work due to your injury, you are entitled to insurance proceeds to cover part of the income you would have earned. If you suffered an injury which caused you to lose a body part, you are entitled to additional compensation. You are entitled to workers compensation even if you were responsible for your injury in most cases.
Workers compensation cases are handled on a contingency basis, subject to a statutory cap. This means my office does not charge a fee unless we prevail at trial or otherwise settle. The client, however, is responsible for all other expenses and administrative costs regardless of the outcome of the case.***
*There is no charge for the initial consultation if during its course either party decides to decline representation. Cost of initial consultation will be billed to client if representation is undertaken.
***Examples of administrative costs and other expenses include, but are not limited to, copying costs, deposition costs, court fees, travel expenses, medical examinations, expert witness fees, etc.
