If you work for an employer in Georgia who has more than three employees, you should be covered by the state's workers' compensation program. Employers are required to maintain workers' compensation insurance, with the idea being that if you are injured while you are working, the entity you are working for should assist you in your recovery.
Our firm, Nicholson, Silverbach, & Watson, has guided many clients through the workers' compensation claim process over the past 25 years. An attorney with our firm will be happy to support you as you file paperwork and move through the steps of the compensation process.
Why Do I Need a Lawyer to Apply For Workers' Compensation Benefits?
Your employer's workers' compensation insurance company has lawyers looking out for its best interests. Hiring your own attorney indicates you are taking care of your own best interests.
An experienced workers' compensation attorney can advise you at each stage of the claim process and arrange for additional expert support if your case requires it. Our firm can also prepare a strong claim for you if there are complicating factors such as third-party involvement in your injury, or if your employer is disputing your claim.
