Workers’ Compensation Lawyer In Georgia
Workers’ compensation is meant to be an injured employee’s exclusive right to benefits. This means that in most cases, you cannot directly sue your employer for an injury, but instead you must obtain benefits through the workers’ compensation system. Because it is a no-fault system, you do not need to prove that your employer was responsible for your injury in order to get benefits. Injuries and deaths that occur during work time typically are presumed to be compensable.
The workers’ compensation process can be lengthy and complex unless you have the help of a lawyer. It is extremely common for valid claims to be denied or for insurance companies to delay payments to injured workers. I can help you get through the process regardless of the complexity of your case. I am attorney David Garner. Based in the Marietta area, I have worked on both sides of workers’ compensation cases.
