If you have been injured on the job in Cumming, you may be entitled to compensation under Workers' Compensation laws in Georgia. Laws require employers to provide safe working environments for their employees, and in Georgia any business with three or more workers, including regular part-time workers, must carry workers' compensation insurance. Your employer is obligated to abide by these laws and the majority of them do. However accidents can and will happen, and in many cases these accidents are caused by negligence on behalf of the company or a co-worker. In some cases, a third party might have contributed to your injuries and there may be legal recourse to obtain payment for missed work, medical bills, and pain and suffering.

Workers' compensation insurance companies have lawyers advising them on their rights and requirements when it comes to workers' compensation claims.

Common workplace accidents and injuries include:
  • Construction accidents
  • Forklift injuries
  • Commercial trucking accidents
  • Falls
  • Lifting injuries
  • Injuries from conveyors and manufacturing product defects
  • Safety or OSHA violations
  • Chemical burns
  • Repetitive injuries (i.e. carpal tunnel syndrome)

In a perfect world, you wouldn't need workers' compensation lawyers after being hurt on the job or suffering negative effects of long-term exposure to hazardous conditions. You would file a claim and get paid for your medical expenses as well as part or all of your weekly wages.

But that's not reality. Since your claim means money out of the pocket of your employer and its workers' compensation insurance carrier, many of them will do everything in their power to avoid paying you the full amount to which you're entitled under the law. In many instances, once the employee returns to work, they are fired.

Common workers compensation benefits
  • Free Medical Care – past, present and future for your injuries
  • Lost Weekly Wages for the duration of your recovery
  • Cash Disability Settlements should you be permanently disabled

Your employer and their insurance companies might look to deny your claim for a number of reasons. Casey Stevens worked for ten years as an insurance claims manager, and another four as an insurance company defense attorney.

  • They will deny that the injury occurred on the job
  • They might claim the injury is exaggerated or faked
  • They claim the employee lied about a pre-existing medical condition
  • They claim the employee has recovered from the injury and can return to work
  • They fire the employee after the injury and ignore the claim
  • They pay wage benefit checks late to make the employee want to settle the claim early
  • They refuse to agree to let the employee see a specialist or refuse to allow necessary and justified surgery or therapies

If you have been injured on the job or are suffering from long-term exposure to hazardous or damaging conditions and feel you are being short-changed, you need quality representation to stand up to your employer and its workers' compensation insurance company.
