Do I really need a Georgia workers' comp attorney if the insurance company is supposed to settle with me?

Not all workers' compensation claims require an attorney. However, if your workplace accident case involves substantial injuries, lost wages, and medical expenses, you can benefit from the representation of an experienced Georgia workers' comp attorney. Here's why.

Injured workers may need to hire a Georgia workers' comp attorneyThe more serious your injuries, the more your employer's workers' compensation insurer will have to pay out in medical and wage replacement benefits. As profit-focused businesses dedicated to protecting their bottom line, insurance companies rarely pay claimants what they're owed without a fight. Sometimes, insurance adjusters may even use tricks—such as disputing the cost of needed medical care—in an attempt to reduce their financial obligation to you. Fortunately, you don't have to take this kind of unfair treatment lying down.

A knowledgeable workers' compensation attorney can level the playing field between you and the insurance company's savvy corporate legal team and ensure that your claim is resolved fairly. Your attorney will investigate your accident and eligibility for benefits and handle communication and negotiations with the insurance company on your behalf. If the insurer fails to act in good faith, an attorney can also take your case to trial.

After a Georgia workplace injury, you may be counting on workers' compensation benefits to help you get back on your feet and back to work. With so much at stake, it's crucial to make sure you're receiving the full and fair compensation you deserve. Let a skilled workers' comp attorney protect your rights and interests.
