In cases involving personal injuries and accidents, determining what your claim is worth is more than just adding up medical bills and damages to property. It is important to take into consideration the impact your injury could have on your life in the future, psychically, emotionally, and financially. When determining what your injury claim may be worth, it is important consider the following factors:

  • The potential for suffering chronic conditions, with could result in periodic relapses and require ongoing treatment;
  • The impacts health problems could have now and in the future on your ability to participate in activities and do the things you enjoy;
  • The potential for permanent scarring or disfigurement; and
  • Lasting disabilities that could affect your ability to work in your chosen field and could impact your earning potential and future savings.

All of these things and more need to be carefully considered when calculating the total amount your personal injury claim may be worth. Unfortunately, these are often the type of expenses that are either left out or underestimated when dealing with insurance companies. To get a truly accurate estimate of what your claim is worth is to contact our experienced Georgia personal injury attorneys for a free case review.

In the aftermath of an accident, injured victims often mistakenly believe that the insurance company is on their side and will help them to get the amount of compensation they deserve. Unfortunately, this is not the case. The insurer is operating a business, and like any business, their bottom line is making money. In order to accomplish this, companies often limit administrative costs by limiting the amount of time and effort spent on each claim, with the result being that offers to settle your claim may be far less than what you expected or what your case is actually worth. According to the Georgia Office of Insurance, avoid signing an insurance release accepting settlement of your accident claim before doing the following:

  • Conducting your own investigation into the costs associated with replacing or repairing any property damaged in the accident;
  • Speaking with your doctor about the prognosis for your injuries, any future treatments you may require, and any lasting effects or disabilities you may suffer;
  • Keeping a written record of all bills and statements you have received, as well as all correspondence you have had with the company and its representatives; and
  • Consulting with a legal professional before signing a release accepting a settlement amount.

You have one chance to get the compensation you need to recover from your injuries. It pays to have our experienced personal injury attorneys working on your behalf and negotiating with the insurance company to ensure you get the maximum amount you deserve.

In the aftermath of an accidental injury, it does not take long for medical bills to come flooding in. Depending on the circumstances of your accident, you may be entitled to compensation for these bills and other costs associated with your injuries. How do you manage these medical costs while waiting for your case to settle? You can always elect to have your bills paid through your own private insurance. If you do this, you are still free to receive compensation for these costs through your insurance claim or through a personal injury lawsuit. Your other option is to have our attorneys file a letter of protection on your behalf with your medical providers. This letter lets them know that you are involved in a lawsuit, and assures creditors that they will be paid through the proceeds of your suit or claim.

While most accident victims want to get the maximum amount of compensation for their injuries, many have concerns about actually taking their cases to court. According to statistics from Black’s Law Dictionary, in approximately 95 percent of personal injury cases, the injured party receives a settlement without ever having to step foot in a courtroom. A major reason that insurance companies are willing to settle is that a court proceeding will likely result in increased costs, such as court fees and legal expenses.

Any money saved by offering you less than what your claim is worth is cancelled out by these costs. Additional motivation for at-fault parties to settle is that if a claim amount cannot be agreed upon and the case goes to trial, a judge will then set the amount, which is again likely to involve additional costs, thereby eliminating any savings for the insurer or at fault party.

There is only one state in the country that does not require employers to carry workers’ compensation. Georgia is not that state. So if you work anywhere within the state of Georgia then your employer more than likely has to carry workers’ compensation. What does this mean for you? If you are involved in an accident at your job, then your employer’s workers compensation insurance will cover your medical care, wages, and other related expenses. If you have been injured on the job and are now asking yourself, “Do my injuries qualify for workers compensation,” then you’ve come to the right place. Read on to learn more about qualifying for workers comp or give us a call at 770-988-6155 for a FREE consultation with an experienced workers comp lawyer in Atlanta.

How Long Do I Have to Be on the Job to File Workers Compensation

If your employer carries workers compensation insurance as required by state law, and you are classified as an employee (versus an independent contractor), then you should have coverage from day one working at your job. There are some employees who are under the impression that you have to work a certain number of hours in order to qualify for Georgia workers’ compensation. This is not true. Regardless if you are a part-time worker a full-time worker, a new employee or an employee with tenure, then you qualify for workers’ compensation benefits.

Disqualified from Workers Compensation?

Several of our clients who were injured on the job and came to us for legal counsel was surprised to discover how easy it is to qualify for workers’ compensation and very few workers are disqualified from receiving their benefits after filing a worker’s comp claim. Georgia Workers Compensation laws allow you to qualify for your workers’ compensation benefits regardless if you have what is considered a severe or minor injury. Even if you caused the incident by mistake you are still covered.

Although it is easy to qualify for workers’ compensation, there are ways that you can be disqualified as well. Take a look at the list of questions below. If you answer yes to any of the following questions, then there is a strong chance that your workers’ compensation claim will be denied and you will not be able to receive your workers’ comp benefits.

  • Did you cause the incident intentionally?
  • Did you cause the accident while breaking the law?
  • Also, did you have drugs in your system when the accident occurred?
  • Did you fail to report the injury to your employer?
  • Did you fail to report the injury within 30 days from the date that the accident happened?
  • Lastly, did you refuse to seek medical treatment from a company approved physician?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions it is important that you contact an experienced workers compensation lawyer as soon as possible to give yourself the best fighting chance at settling your workers’ comp claim and receiving the benefits you deserve. Give us a call now at 770-988-6155.

What Kind of Medical Benefits Can I Receive with a Georgia Workers Compensation Claim

One of the many benefits of workers compensation insurance is that it offers the following medical coverage:

  • Doctor appointments
  • Hospital Stays
  • Prescriptions
  • Medical devices
  • Surgeries
  • Physical therapy
  • Mental health care
  • Other medical expenses

When facing an urgent medical situation, you are urged to go to the nearest emergency room, and your medical benefits will cover the expense. However, beyond this point, you are required to seek treatment from a physician that is approved by your employer. If the travel distance to the doctor’s office is more than ten miles from your home, or place of employment, you can request coverage for the gas mileage used when traveling to and from your doctor appointments.

What Happens if I Disagree With the Decision of My Employer or Workers Compensation Insurance

If you disagree with the decision of your employer, or their workers’ compensation insurance provider, then you have the right to request a hearing. It is best to have a workers’ compensation attorney at your side while going through the process. A workers’ comp lawyer will possess the skills and knowledge to successfully argue your case and point. Your lawyer can even request a hearing on your behalf and take the leading role in mediation.

Mediation typically takes place within 60 days after the judge receives the WC-14 with the hearing request notated. Mediation gives you and your attorney the chance to resolve the initial dispute or disagreement without going to court. If all parties are not able to come to a resolution in mediation, then the next step will be a scheduled hearing. If you haven’t already hired a workers comp lawyer at this point you will want to do so immediately.

Atlanta Workers Comp Attorney Fees

In the state of Georgia, workers compensation lawyers are limited to 25% of your awarded weekly workers comp benefits.  The maximum an injured employee who is not able to return to work can receive in weekly wage benefits is $575 for up to 400 weeks. If you are able to return to work, but only in light-duty work situations, you are qualified to get a maximum of $383 for up to 350 weeks. Under a circumstance where a worker experienced catastrophic injuries due to a work-related injury, these limits may not apply.

It is also important to note that wage benefits will not be provided if you are out of work for less than the minimum eight days required to qualify. Call the Law Office of John B. Jackson today to learn more from one of the best workers compensation lawyers in the Atlanta area.
