I have spoken to many clients and potential clients over the years who express major concern over hiring an attorney in a workers’ compensation case for fear of losing their job. This is particularly true in these times we live in now. What I explain is that it is very much against the company’s interest to terminate an injured employee because when that person is medically released with restrictions, the company cannot offer them a job and the weekly benefits must continue. This is not a happy moment for their workers’ compensation insurance company.

Another reason that we like to be involved early on in a worker’s compensation case is that, even in a case that SEEMS all on track in the moment, you can rest assured that the insurance company is always looking for a way out. Be that by careful choosing of a favorable doctor, or simply not informing the worker of their rights under the law and taking advantage of that situation. What we do is stand guard at the door and insure that our clients are protected, that the insurers and their attorneys are following the law, and that the claim stays “between the ditches” all the way to a point where settlement might be appropriate. That is often dependent on where the claim is medically.

How we can help

In both workers’ compensation and personal injury claims, an unfavorable outcome can be devastating. An adverse award on a workers’ compensation claim means that it has been denied and no income benefits or medical payments will be made. No rehabilitation services will be extended and the injured individual who is unable to work will find it difficult to meet even his or her basic needs.

Nobody deserves added financial stress while living with a serious illness, injury or disability. That’s why Tillman & Associates, with offices in Atlanta, Georgia, is committed to helping clients all over Georgia seek full and fair compensation under the law. With more than 35 years of legal experience, attorney Burt Tillman and the staff at Tillman & Associates know how to pursue your claim and obtain the benefits you need and deserve.
