IF YOU’VE BEEN HURT ON THE JOB IN GEORGIA, WILL YOU KNOW HOW TO TAKE ON THE INSURANCE COMPANY AND THEIR LAWYERS BY YOURSELF? Think about that for a moment . . . You’ve been hurt on the job. And now you have a lot of questions, but not a lot of answers: * Who will pay for all of your medical bills? * You don’t have health insurance, so how do you get the medical treatment you need for your injuries? * How can you recover your lost wages? * You are receiving workers’ compensation checks, but how do you know it is for the right amount? * Do you have to treat with the company doctor? * Can you get a second opinion with a doctor you know and trust? * What about your future medical needs or lost wages? * What are your rights, and what are the insurance company’s responsibilities? This is a lot for anyone to handle - all of the phone calls back and forth, the emails, the paperwork, the releases. Will you be able to navigate the workers’ compensation law and the State Board of Workers’ Compensation Rules on your own? Will you have the time or the knowledge to handle this by yourself? Do you need a guide to help explain the process to you? And ask yourself - do you really want to take on the insurance company and their lawyers by yourself- especially without educating yourself on the claims process here in Georgia?
