Experienced Attorneys Helping Victims of On-the-Job Injuries get the Compensation they DeserveIn Georgia, the law requires most employers to provide insurance to cover the costs of medical treatment, rehabilitation, and disability for employees who are injured on the job. However, obtaining the benefits you are entitled to under the workers’ compensation system is not easy. The laws governing the system are complicated and require the help of an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer.
At Kimmey & Murphy we have helped countless injured workers obtain the benefits they need to rebuild their lives. We understand the complexities of workers’ comp law and how to obtain the compensation you deserve.
The workers’ compensation insurance company has the right to choose the doctor who provides the initial medical evaluation in your case. Because your employer and the insurance company want to limit the amount they pay in benefits, they will tend to select a doctor who will minimize the extent of your injury and any resulting disability. If you accept the results of this evaluation, you may not receive the recovery or rehabilitation resources you need to recover to the fullest extent possible. You are entitled to a second medical opinion by a doctor who is truly concerned with your well-being. We can help you obtain a second, impartial medical evaluation, and see that all of your rights under the law are protected. Our goal is to maximize the compensation you receive.
There are strict time limits in the workers’ compensation system, and if you fail to comply, you may forfeit your right to compensation forever.
