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.

Some work-related injuries are a bit more straightforward than others. For instance, if you drop a piece of heavy equipment on your foot, or alternatively, seriously injure your back after lifting 200 pounds worth of metal piping, the fact that you suffered an injury while on the job is pretty apparent. However, sometimes a work-related injury isn’t so clear and concisely decided. In fact, often the injured worker may fail to realize the nature and extent of his or her debilitating symptoms. Especially if it is a repetitive strain injury.

When an injury develops over time from repetitive and regular job-related duties, the progressive nature of the illness and the slow yet unavoidable increased severity of the underlying symptoms may slide under the radar. However, over time, the symptoms will likely become so debilitating and difficult to manage, that continuing to carry out one’s job-related duties is nearly impossible.

What is a Repetitive Strain Injury?

Lifting heavy equipment all day for years on end, or even slumping over a desk for years many can lead to repetitive strain injuries that may eventually become just as debilitating, if not more so, than the more straightforward and recognizable type injuries that occurred with an immediate onset. 

Failing to recognize a repetitive strain injury is completely understandable. After all, when there is no single identifiable injury that one can pinpoint as the cause, these symptoms are often ignored and attributed to “getting older” or some other natural cause. Even if the source of such a symptom is recognized for what it truly is – years of monotonous and strenuous strain on the body – many understandably feel that an absence of an immediate injury hinders them from any recovery under Georgia Workers’ Compensation legal system.

Thankfully, this isn’t the case. If you are experiencing symptoms of a repetitive strain injury, you may very well be entitled to worker’s compensation benefits. The first step is recognizing the common signs associated with a repetitive strain injury. The next step is understanding how to approach your present employer to give notification of your job-related injury, so as to start the process necessary to receive the compensation that you are entitled to under the law.

This is not a simple task, to say the least. To start the process of your injury claim off correctly, consult and retain an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer. A Georgia workers comp attorney will know the laws, deadlines, and procedures one must follow to get the benefits available for injured workers.

How Do I Know if I Have a Repetitive Strain Injury?

Any repetitive motion can result in a repetitive strain injury that can progressively become worse over time. However, there are certain types of employment where this type of progressive injury is more commonly seen. They are as follows:

  1. Truck driving
  2. Janitorial work
  3. Computer/typing/desk work
  4. Any type of assembly line job
  5. Construction
  6. Operating heavy machinery
  7. Checker at a supermarket or retail store

Facts are that the human body was not intended for years of constant physical repetition. Variation of movement is key to a healthy and pain-free body. Any one movement or position that is maintained or repeated for an extended period of time is likely to lead to some chronic, lasting symptoms. Nevertheless, the first step in avoiding an advancing and debilitating repetitive strain injury is recognizing that you may be starting to experience the early onset of symptoms commonly associated with such injuries. The next step is to take the necessary precautions so that your repetitive strain injury does not progress.

Signs That You Might be Developing a Repetitive Strain Injury

Some signs of early RSI include the following sensations in the muscles and/or nerves:

  1. Throbbing
  2. Tingling
  3. Cramps
  4. Dull pain evolving to sharp pain

While a repetitive strain injury can happen just about anywhere, it is most often seen in the hands, back, wrists, elbows, shoulders, and neck.

What Can I Do to Stop it?

While the stress and pressures of workplace often distract from taking care of one’s body, some simple steps may help protect one from the further progression of RSI. For starters, take the breaks to which you are legally entitled. If your body is constantly uncomfortable and you are starting to regularly notice pain or cramping in a particular part of your body, you should see a medical professional as soon as you are able. You can also work on trying different techniques to stop the progression of this progressive injury.

Can I Get Workers’ Comp Benefits?

Believe it or not, you may very well be entitled to worker’s compensation benefits for a repetitive strain injury sustained on the job. A critical and often challenging step is recognizing that you are in fact suffering from a work-related repetitive strain injury. However, as soon as you recognize the cause of your related symptoms, it is essential that you seek medical treatment and make your employer aware of your work-related injury.

As soon as you become aware your symptoms are likely a work-related strain injury, it is imperative that you claim worker’s compensation benefits. Although, you may find yourself worried that you may face retaliation or termination as a result of seeking worker’s compensation benefits, take solace in the fact that your employer cannot legally fire you or retaliate against you for making a workers’ compensation claim.
