Injured at Work?
Workplace injuries may range from minor cuts that heal in a few days to major brain injuries that may never fully heal. It may be crucial for you and your dependents to secure enough money to meet your needs.
Injured workers face a complex process, including denial of claims, low settlement offers, and delayed payments, even when employers have workers’ compensation insurance.
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
- 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.
- 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.
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.
- 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’sadvice, and hang on to your medical bills for your case.
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.”
- Get a free case evaluation with a qualified workers’ compensation attorney. Our workers’ compensation attorneys are skilled in pursuing all the benefits a Georgia worker can receive to improve their health and well-being.

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 in getting appropriate medical treatment, and secure the compensation 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 and 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 affiliated with your workers’ compensation case because your attorney will need these records to include in the negotiation process.
