If you have been injured at work, you are entitled to workers' compensation benefits under Georgia law. Workers' comp exists because of the dangerous nature of many jobs, and employers' historical reluctance to take responsibility for working conditions and worker safety. Workers' compensation is not a handout and it is not the same as filing a frivolous lawsuit in an effort to secure a large payday. Filing a workers' comp claim is your right, and it is designed to help you recover costs for medical bills and lost wages.
I help injured workers file for workers' compensation benefits, obtain a hearing on denied claims and seek additional damages from negligent third parties. Unlike most other area law firms, I focus my practice primarily on workers' compensation and related areas, such as personal injury.
With 18 years of legal experience, a decade of which I have dedicated solely to workers' comp, I have the knowledge and skill to help you with your claim. I spent many years working for a large insurance defense firm that represented employers and insurance companies in workers' compensation cases. I know how the other side thinks. This is an advantage that you will not find at many firms. While I will settle cases when appropriate, I will go to trial when necessary. I have extensive trial experience and have litigated some of the most complex legal is.
When you call my firm, you will speak with me directly. I will work with you throughout your case. You will not be passed off to a paralegal or other office staff. Every client receives personalized attention from start to finish.
