Why do you need to hire a workers’ comp lawyer for your Georgia workers’ comp claim? You need to hire an experienced workers’ comp attorney if you are injured on the job. Otherwise it will be unlikely that your workers’ comp rights and benefits will be protected, and it is even less likely that you will receive a good workers’ comp settlement. Here are some ways that workers’ compensation lawyers can help:
- Notice of Claim: We can file the WC-14 Notice of Claim with the State Board of Workers’ Compensation for Georgia before the Statute of Limitations expires.
- Medical Benefits: We can make sure all of your medical treatment is authorized and paid for by the workers’ comp adjuster.
- Income Benefits: We can make sure all of your weekly income benefits are paid timely and in the correct amounts.
- Permanent Partial Disability Benefits: We can make sure that your permanent partial disability rating is assigned and permanent partial disability benefits paid when the injures are of a permanent nature.
- Settlements: Great workers’ compensation settlements will not happen without the hard work by an experienced Atlanta workers’ compensation lawyer.
You have a lot to lose. Georgia workers’ compensation claims are complex. There is a lot at stake. Hiring a workers’ comp lawyer is on a 25% contingency fee basis. This means that you do not pay a retainer and only pay 25% of the workers’ comp recovery that you would not likely get without the help of a great attorney.
