Comprehensive Workers’ Compensation Representation
In Georgia, workers’ compensation claims are handled through the Georgia State Board of Workers’ Compensation. If you have sustained a work injury, you may be entitled to workers’ comp benefits through the state board. However, seeking these benefits after an accident or on-the-job injury can be a frustrating experience.At Cromartie Law, our lawyer and staff will handle your claim from the initial application through the hearing and any necessary appeals before the Georgia State Board of Workers’ Compensation.
Injured At Work? We Can Help.
Our firm represents employees who have been injured while working in virtually all types of occupations and industries. We represent factory workers, assembly line workers, construction workers, office workers and many others. In addition to seeking benefits on behalf of injured workers, we handle wrongful death lawsuits that arise from fatal work accidents.
Although there are many types of work accidents, some of the same rules apply to all of them. You need to report your workplace accident within 30 days of the accident or injury, and then you need to file your claim within a year of the accident or injury — even if your employer tries to convince you not to. If you are unsure of what to do, seek help from an attorney. You may decide to wait for a year to file your claim. However, having legal counsel can ensure that this is the most advisable decision for you.
Have You Encountered A Problem After Your Claim Was Approved?
Attorney Rick Cromartie also helps people whose claims have been approved and are now experiencing difficulties involving other matters such as:
- The insurer may be trying to stop treatment too early.
- The insurer may not want to pay for certain medical procedures even though the workers’ comp doctor claims it is necessary.
- You are supposed to be working only light duty with medical restrictions, but your employer ignores those restrictions.
- You are not receiving the correct income and benefits that were calculated based on your average weekly wage.
