In Atlanta, you may be eligible to obtain workers compensation if you are a worker or employee who is injured while working within the scope of your employment. The main stipulation to be eligible for such benefit is that your injury must be job-related. Fault is not deemed a factor in order to claim workers compensation. Basically, workers compensation aims to protect all injured workers such as yourself, and help return you to your job at the soonest possible time.
Workers compensation claims may be a result of various scenarios, such as construction site accidents or slip and fall accidents that may lead to traumatic brain injuries and spinal cord injuries.
The primary benefit under workers compensation is medical treatment for the work-related injury, as well as reimbursement for lost wages. Medical care costs include consultations, physical therapy, nursing care, surgical services, dental services, dental services, and prescribed medications.
Workers compensation can be a complex matter to understand. Apart from laws concerning workers compensation varying per state, injured employees also sometimes encounter difficulties obtaining the benefits they deserve. Some companies may prolong the process in hopes that you give up your compensation request, while other companies may even purposely lie about the existing conditions that caused the accident that injured you. Other companies may agree to compensate you, but may fail to approve certain medical procedures that may be necessary to your recovery.
If you sustain an injury while at the workplace, it is important that you consult with an experienced Atlanta workers compensation or personal injury lawyer. An attorney can assist you and thoroughly investigate your claim to ensure that you receive the maximum possible benefits that you rightfully deserve.
