In-Depth Experience For Work Injury Claims
Many people have questions about whether their specific injuries make them eligible for workers’ compensation. In general, you may file for compensation for any on-the-job injury that impairs your ability to do your job. If you are not sure about your injury, just call me. I will help you understand your rights and how Georgia’s workers’ compensation system takes care of injured workers like you.
I am attorney David Garner, and I have more than 20 years of legal experience in Georgia. Because I used to work for a law firm that represented workers’ compensation insurance companies and employers, I know how the other side operates. This experience allows me to accurately evaluate my clients’ claims because I can anticipate how the insurance company’s lawyers may try to deny them.
Work-Related Injury Claims
Workplace injuries can be caused by accidents, defective equipment, repetitive motions or poorly designed workstations. Whether your injury causes temporary or permanent disability, workers’ compensation benefits should cover your medical costs and a portion of your lost wages.
You can file a workers’ compensation claim for a wide range of injuries such as:
- Repetitive stress injuries, including carpal tunnel syndrome, joint injuries and back injuries
- Catastrophic injuries, including brain injuries, amputations and burns
- Spinal and orthopedic injuries, including paralysis and broken bones
I have experience with all of these injuries and will help you get the medical tests and reports you need for your workers’ compensation claim. In addition, I represent surviving family members who have lost loved ones who have died on the job in wrongful death claims.
