Exceptional Legal Representation In Workers' Comp Claims

Our firm is founded by Robert Bourne, an attorney widely recognized for his knowledge and skill in this area of law. He has helped thousands of injured Georgians obtain workers' compensation benefits. Our goal is to help you get all of the benefits you are entitled to recieve.

Insurance companies will often try to take advantage unrepresented workers after an injury. Be on the lookout for unsavory practices, such as:

  • Ignoring your requests for medical treatment
  • Paying you the wrong amount of weekly income benefits
  • Lowball settlement offers
  • A "company doctor" is trying to send you back to work too soon
  • Denying valid claims
  • Failing to pay for travel expenses to doctor appointments

Workers’ compensation cases are different than personal injury cases because they have their own special rules. In workers' comp, employees who are unrepresented by an attorney often do not receive the full benefits they are entitled to.

Our attorneys are often asked to speak at legal seminars to teach other lawyers how to handle work injury cases. The insurance companies are represented by expert attorneys and you should be too.

We've got your back.

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.

know your rights

...
#1

You have right to choose your doctor from a list provided by your Employer. This is called a panel of physicians. If your employer does not have a list of doctors then you are free to choose any doctor that you want.

...
#2

Never sign anything without speaking to an attorney. The insurance company may ask you to sign a medical release or accident report. They may be attempting to gather evidence to deny your claim. Ask a lawyer before signing anything.

...
#3

You have up to 30 days to give your employer notice of the injury, but you should not wait. Report the accident as soon as possible. There are also time limits to file a workers' compensation claim that can be as short as 1 year from the date of your accident.
