WORKERS COMPENSATION

Injured Workers in the State of Georgia have certain rights and privileges afforded them under the Law. However, it is important to note that the laws that govern work related injuries are substantially different from those of the normal personal injury action. In my twenty-five years I have learned that the average worker does not fully comprehend what rights he or she may have, and to be frank, what limitations there are in connection with any work-related injury. The purpose of this Wed site is simply to offer you a brief oversight, and assist you in your decision on whether or not you should secure legal counsel to represent you in your workers compensation claim. The comedian, Jerry Seinfeld once said that life is like a huge board game, and only the lawyers have read the rules on the cover. Workers Compensation law is governed by a strict set of State Board Rules and laws. Be sure you have read those rules. If you have not, please find a lawyer who has.
