Injuries Covered By Workers’ Compensation
You are covered by Georgia workers’ compensation whenever you suffer a job-related injury or illness, regardless of who was at fault. Early advice from an attorney who focuses on workers’ compensation law can assure you recover the maximum benefits you are due for health care, lost wages and permanent loss. You may also have what is known as a third-party claim if someone other than your employer caused your injury.
The following are examples of the types of injury cases we handle:
- Crushing injuriesInjuries from fire or steam
- Lifting injuries
- Equipment accidents
- Hearing loss
- Silica or asbestos exposure
- Job-related illnesses, including mental disorders
When you are seriously hurt and the company is paying the bill, its interests are not the same as yours. That’s why it is always useful to work with a lawyer who is accustomed to the give and take of negotiations and is not afraid to stand up for your rights.
