Workers' Compensation

All employees have a right to a safe workplace, and any accident on the job that results in an injury may be eligible for worker's compensation. Even if the accident was simply an employees' fault, he or she may still be eligible for workers compensation. 

In Georgia, workers compensation law is very complicated and includes certain requirements and deadlines that must be met to receive full compensation.  Our attorneys have over 40 years combined experience prosecuting and defending workers' compensation claims, including catastrophic and death cases.  Our experience can work for you, as our attorneys will help you navigate successfully through the workers compensation process, including investigating whether employer negligence or a third-party equipment manufacturer contributed to the accident.

Construction workers are at particularly high risk for injuries on the job.  Falls are one of the most common causes of serious work-related injuries in Georgia, and results of a fall can range from temporary debilitations to death. Falling from an elevated area at a construction site, such as a ladder or a scaffold, only increases your risk of injury on the job.

However, work does not need to be very active to cause injury. The modern-day workplace often utilizes technology and machinery that requires a very limited range of motion to operate.  Many jobs associated with conducting repetitive tasks for long periods of time can cause work-related injuries that need to be addressed.  Injuries due to overuse and repetitive motions are commonly found in the wrist, elbow, knee, shoulders, neck or back.  Common symptoms of injuries due to overuse include pain, numbness, weakness, tingling and burning and may require surgery and time off of work to recover.
