Atlanta Workers Compensation – Bobe & Snell
Workers Compensation was established for employees and employers to quickly and easily resolve the issues of job-related injuries. When a system works, and the insurance carrier and employer are fair and forthcoming, there’s no need for legal action. However, if the employer or their insurer denies your claim, or you’re needlessly waiting to get the compensation that’s necessary for you and your family, our Atlanta workers compensation attorneys can ensure the protection of your rights, and assist you to obtain fair compensation.
On-the-job injuries entitle victims to benefits for long-term and short-term expenses. Applicable benefits cover a broad range of disabilities and injuries acquired on the job. Some laws may entitle you to the benefits, often for a lifetime, if you’ve lost a loved one due to a job-related accident.
If you’ve been injured on the job, you may be entitled to workers compensation for medical fees, lost wages, medication, rehabilitation, and even travel expenses. Our Atlanta workers compensation attorneys will discuss with you all benefits and do everything to maximize the benefits you can recover.
After a job-related injury, promptly notify your employer, seek proper medical treatment, and then contact one of our reputable, experienced Atlanta workers compensation attorneys to file a claim for you.
Are You Eligible for Workers’ Compensation Benefits?
If you were injured or became ill because of your work, you could be entitled to Atlanta workers compensation benefits, including payments for lost wages and medical bills. As long as you are eligible, you may get compensation irrespective of who was at fault for the accident or injury. You lose the right to file a lawsuit against your employer for the damages (except in some situations when you can sue outside of the workers compensation system) in exchange for this protection.
Generally, there are three basic eligibility requirements for Atlanta workers compensation benefits:
- You must be an employee
- Your employer must carry workers compensation insurance
- You must have a work-related illness or injury
Some categories of employees have special rules, including agricultural and farm workers, domestic workers, seasonal or casual workers, and workers placed with the employer by temp agencies.
