Injured at Work in Georgia or South Carolina?

Workplace Injuries may range from something minor that heals in a few days, to major injuries that may never fully heal.

Injured workers face a complex process, including denial of claims, low settlement offers, and delayed payments.

You also need to act fast, because there is a deadline to file your Workers’ Compensation Claim.

Contact a Workers' Comp Attorney at The Brown Firm to review your case, protect your rights, and get you the compensation you deserve.

What to do After a Work-Related Injury 

1. Report the workplace injury to your employer immediately. Obtain and fill out the paperwork required by your company and forward it to the appropriate organization for processing. Be as specific as possible when reporting your injury.

2. Fill out an injury or illness claim form. Employers should have you complete a claim form regardless of whether you have already reported the accident.

You want to submit a complete form as soon as possible after you’ve been injured. Reporting your matter quickly helps you obtain workers’ compensation benefits sooner and helps to verify that you are doing your part in the process.

3. Seek medical help immediately. The law in Georgia requires that you select from a list of physicians posted by your company in a prominent location. In addition, the law requires that you are informed of this list and understand its function. Make every effort to follow the doctor’s advice. Best Workers' Compensation Attorney in Georgia and South Carolina

Be sure to tell the doctor that the injury or illness was due to a workplace incident and explain exactly how it happened. If the doctor doesn’t feel that you can return to work because of your injury, make sure to ask for an “off work slip.”

When to File a Work-Related Injury Claim 

A workers' comp attorney will be your best tool to determine whether you have a compensable claim, protect your rights, assist you to get appropriate medical treatment and get the compensation that you deserve. 

It is important to file a claim for workers' compensation benefits as soon as the work injury occurs.  If you wait too long to report a claim after your work injury you may be denied coverage because the insurance company may view your claim as illegitimate.

You must notify your employer of your injury immediately and file a formal workers’ compensation claim. You should include any pertinent details such as:

  • Place Of Injury
  • Date
  • Time
  • How The Injury Occurred

If applicable you may include a list of witnesses who can attest to the work-related injury on your behalf.

Obtaining Immediate Medical Care is also critical to this process. Take the time to make all of your follow up appointments as well.

After treatment, be sure to obtain all medical records that are affiliated with your workers' compensation case because your attorney will need these records to include in the negotiation process.

 How Much Does a Workers' Compensation Lawyer Cost?

Hiring a Workers' Compensation Attorney will not cost you any upfront legal fees, because they work on what is called a Contingency Fee Basis, and also provide a Free Consultation.

A Contingency Fee Basis means that you do not pay any legal fees up front, and your attorneys only collect a fee in the form of a small percentage of your final settlement.

Working on a Contingency Fee Basis is very beneficial to Workplace Injury Victims because they can rest assured knowing that their attorney will do everything in their power to maximize their settlement for them.

When Should I File a Work Place Injury Claim?

You must notify your employer of your injury immediately and file a formal workers’ compensation claim. You should include any pertinent details such as:

  • Place Of Injury
  • Date
  • Time
  • How The Injury Occurred

If applicable you may include a list of witnesses who can attest to the work-related injury on your behalf.

 How Long Will it Take to Get my Settlement?

Workers' Compensation Lawsuits can vary a great deal when it comes to the length of time it will take to settle. 

First, it depends on how soon after your accident you speak to an attorney and how long it takes to file your claim.

Second, the seriousness of the accident and the extent of the injuries can cause the length of time to vary. In most cases, insurance companies will want to wait until the victim is completely healed from their injuries and they have all of the medical bills before settling. This is another reason speaking with an attorney is beneficial as they can set up a medical lien so that you do not have to pay your medical bills and then wait for reimbursement.

Finally, it depends on the size of the settlement and how backed up the courts are at the time. If you are willing to accept a smaller settlement, then your case can usually be resolved in a few weeks or months. If you are going after a larger settlement, it may take longer.

Also, if your case goes to trial, it can get pushed back even further due to courts usually being backed up with hundreds of cases waiting to be heard.

If I Hire a Workers' Compensation Attorney, Will I Have to Go to Trial?

Usually, you will not need to go to trial during your Workers' Compensation Lawsuit. Most of the time, a settlement will be reached between your attorney and the at-fault party's insurance company. However, your attorney will discuss with you what the best option is for you to receive the largest settlement possible, and occasionally that can mean going to trial.
