Johns Creek Workers' Compensation Attorney

Workers' Compensation Attorney Near Johns Creek, GA

Workers' compensation cases can often pit the interests of a sick or injured worker against the interests of an employer. For this reason, the workers' compensation claim process can be adversarial and difficult, and will often necessitate the use of a lawyer who is experienced with regard to workers' comp claims.

Any injury can be scary, but one that occurs on the job—and interferes with your ability to do your job—can be truly frightening. Even a minor accident can cause serious injuries that wreak physical, emotional, and financial stress. Workplace accidents are not rare, and in Georgia all employers who have more than three employees (even part time employees) are required to carry workers' compensation insurance. If you have a workers comp issue, it is imperative to consult a workers comp attorney in Georgia as soon as possible.

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)

Many injuries that happen at work are simple accidents. In these cases, you may be able to obtain workers' compensation from your employer’s workers' compensation insurance plan to alleviate some of the financial stress after you’ve been injured. In those cases, legal recourse is not warranted and you do not need a lawyer. However, in limited circumstances, if you were injured because your employer knowingly exposed you to unsafe conditions or failed to take safety measures, you may be allowed to seek compensation by filing a lawsuit. If the negligence of a third party (a person or company other than your employer) contributed to causing your injury, you may be able to bring a lawsuit against that party—regardless of whether you are receiving workers’ compensation benefits from your employer.

Stevens Law: Alpharetta Personal Injury and Car Accident Lawyers can evaluate your case at no cost to you and help you determine exactly who is responsible for your injuries and whether or not you have a viable case against them.

Common Reasons Your Employer and Their Insurance Company Might try to Deny Your Claim

  • 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 in order to ensure the best settlement possible.

Client Reviews
After being involved and a five car accident I contacted Casey Stevens law firm. I was given his number by a fellow coworker at my job who had used him in the past and was very satisfied with his services. The car accident included myself my husband and my son, the accident was determined to be the fault of two drivers involved in the accident. Casey personally came to my home the next day and said down with me and my family at the kitchen table and went over all the events of the accident. There were months and months of physical therapy, doctor visits injections and while my son had to have his mouth wired after having his jaw broke in three places. Casey and his staff worked continuously on our case and after it was all said and done, they where able to get us over $300,000 in damages. I really want to Thank Casey Stevens and his staff for always being available for phone calls and answering any questions I might have. I will continue to recommend potential clients to Casey Stevens law firm. Nina F
