Cumming's Top Rated Workers' Comp Lawyer Team.

Workers' compensation is one of our firm's primary areas. 50 percent of the cases we handle involve workplace injuries. Other lawyers refer workers' compensation cases to us because of our extensive experience in this area. Our attorneys are asked to speak at legal seminars to teach other lawyers about workers' compensation law.

Workers' compensation cases are unlike other types of personal injuries. In workers' compensation, there are special rules about when you may be entitled to benefits. Not all attorneys are familiar with workers' compensation law. Robert Bourne has been handling workers' compensation cases for over three decades. Our expereince in this area allows us to get the maximum value for your workers' compensation cases.

Not every case needs a workers' compensation lawyer. For example, if you just need to get stiches for a cut at work, then you do not need a lawyer. You usually want to consult a lawyer when you have the type of injury that will require prolonged medcial care or lost time from work. Getting all of the workers' compensation benefits you might be entitled to is not easy. In Georgia, workers' comp insurance companies do not have a duty to act in "good faith". There are precise rules in workers comp cases about when benefits are due, when you have to notify a supervisor of the injury, how long you are entitled to medical treatment, etc. The insurance company will try to use these rules against you to cut off your benefits and limit your cash payments. If you get a free consultation with a lawyer, you might be suprised to learn about the benefits you are entitled to under workers compensation insurance.

It is very common for workers compensation claims to be denied, even based on weak legal arguments. You have a right to request a hearing with the State Board of Workers compensation if your claim has been denied. If you have been denied medical treatment, a weekly check, or even your entire claim, then contact a workers comp lawyer immediately. A lawyer will be able to file the request for a hearing, gather relevant evidence through discovery, and argue your case in front of a workers compensation judge.

Don't wait to contact an attorney if you get hurt at work. The clock is ticking on your case. the Georgia statute of limitations restricts the amount of time injured workers have to file a claim to within one year of the accident date—not two years as in other personal injury claims. Also, workers compensation laws in Georgia have many deadlines and traps that could damage the value of your case. We will protect your benefits.

News stations trust us

Our firm has handled 7 figure cases and won outstanding results for our clients. We are able to get results because we are not afraid to take your case to trial. The insurance companies know which attorneys just want a quick settlement and which attorneys are afraid to go to court. Our firm takes cases to trial and wins.

$125k Settlement

In this case, our client was rear-ended by a driver who was not paying attention to the road. The crash caused a knee injury (meniscus tear). The at-fault driver only had 25k in insurance, but we got our client a 125k payout.

Most importantly, our client was thrilled with the result!

When you hire us, you get us.

The biggest complaint we hear about other attorney's is that they do not return client phone calls. Some other injury lawyers use case managers and paralegals to handle cases because they are too busy. Not Us. You will have your attorney's cell phone number and you will be able to talk with us about your case. We will always return your phone calls.
