Workplace accidents are as serious as any that occur on our Georgia highways, in crosswalks, on city streets, and in our own homes. They have the potential to cause life-altering catastrophic injuries and can leave emotional trauma and PTSD in their wake.
If you were injured while on the job, put a personal injury attorney on your side to help you seek the workers’ compensation you need and deserve. For more than three decades, my firm, Gilbert Injury Law, has been advocating for the rights of injured workers in Atlanta, Macon, Columbus, Valdosta, Augusta, and throughout the state of Georgia.
Work accidents can be caused by all kinds of factors, from unsure footing to defective equipment, malfunctioning machinery, or a ladder or scaffold that should have been replaced. No matter the circumstances in which you were harmed, you deserve dedicated representation. At Gilbert Injury Law, I fight for individuals dealing with a range of serious injuries, including:
If your on-the-job accident or third-party claim has cost you wages, medical bills, expenses related to long-term advanced therapies, or the loss of a relative in a fatal work accident, reach out to me for compassionate legal guidance.
Your health and safety come first, above all else. Before you pursue legal action, let a medical professional perform an in-depth evaluation of your injuries.
After you have received proper medical attention, you should report your injury to your employer. Be as thorough as possible when explaining how your injury occurred.
Once your employer has been made aware of your injury, they will likely provide you with a Form WC-14. You will file this form with the Georgia State Board of Workers’ Compensation. This form must be submitted within 30 days of the date of your accident.
The Georgia State Board of Workers’ Compensation will either approve or deny your claim for compensation. If your claim is approved, there is no need to take further legal action, unless you have a case for a third-party claim. To determine whether or not you have grounds to file a third-party claim, talk to me today.
If your claim for workers’ compensation is denied, you can make an appeal with the help of a personal injury attorney. This process involves submitting additional forms and attending a hearing. At this hearing, your attorney will argue why your claim should be approved.
During this incredibly difficult time, you deserve legal representation that truly cares about you. While large law firms will treat you like just another case number, at Gilbert Injury Law, you’re an individual. Here, your story matters.
For more than three decades, I’ve fought on behalf of injured workers facing the effects of catastrophic injuries. While no amount of money can truly make up for the pain and loss you’ve endured, fair compensation may make the road to recovery just a little easier to navigate.
If you suffered an injury at your place of work, don’t wait to get the guidance you need to file a claim. Schedule a consultation with me as soon as possible in Atlanta. I proudly advocate for injured individuals in the surrounding areas of Macon, Columbus, Valdosta, and Augusta, as well as throughout the state of Georgia.
Put the trusted name in workers’ compensation representation in Atlanta on your side as you face the aftermath of a work-related injury. Whether you were hit by a falling object, hurt by malfunctioning machinery, or injured while driving a company vehicle, I am prepared to pursue justice on your behalf.
