Getting injured at work often causes employees to miss time while they heal. Workers’ compensation insurance was created and is paid for by employers to offer workers a means of support and the ability to pay for medical treatment. However, when workers suffer a serious or permanent injury, a Georgia workers’ compensation attorney should be consulted to ensure proper compensation is provided.
Georgia Workers’ Compensation Attorney
Although employers pay for workers’ compensation insurance as required by the state of Georgia, it is the insurance companies who generally process claims. Injured workers are often confronted by insurance claims adjusters who:
Deny legitimate claims
Undervalue lost wages
Refuse substantial claims for permanent injuries, scarring, and emotional damage
Pressure injured workers to return to the job too soon
Discourage seeking a second medical opinion
Refuse to accept responsibility for conditions resulting in multiple injuries
