When you have been injured on the job, you should only have to worry about getting well, but in many cases you are forced to deal with the financial impact of your inability to work and your employer’s refusal to properly pay income benefits you are owed for the loss of your wages. The attorneys at Goddard and Hammontree have a combined 70 years of experience in representing injured employees and in forcing the employers and insurers be responsible for medical expenses and wage replacement benefits.
Many employers and their insurers have now adopted the strategy that they are going to deny all aspects of an injured worker’s claim so as to either cause the employee to give up on their claims or be forced to settle their claim for much less than they are entitled due to their lack of weekly income. The attorneys at Goddard and Hammontree understand the Georgia Workers’ Compensation system and how to make it work in your favor. They have the experience to advise you as to whether it is in your best interest to settle your case, or to proceed to trial to gain the medical and income benefits you deserve and need to prevent the hardships that can come from a loss of income.
In Georgia Worker’s Compensation cases “negligence” is not a factor. All an injured worker has to do is prove that they were injured in the “course and scope” of their employment and they are entitled to benefits. The attorneys at Goddard and Hammontree have experienced hundreds of workers’ compensation trials and have a proven track record of success for their clients. They have also obtained millions of dollars in settlements for their clients over the life of the firm.
Georgia Workers’ Compensation Claims for All On the Job Injuries
Injuries on the job can take many forms. They may include:
- back injuries, neck injuries, spinal cord injuries, injuries to your upper or lower extremities and head injuries
- repetitive use injuries such as Carpel Tunnel Syndrome, or degenerative back/neck problems aggravated by repetitive motion activities, etc.
- aggravation of any preexisting medical condition (such as the aggravation of an old back injury caused by some new activity at work)
- psychological injuries if they occur in conjunction with a physical injury
Anything that impedes your ability to do your job is likely a candidate for a workers’ compensation claim. If you are unsure whether you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits, you should not hesitate to speak to one of the lawyers at Goddard and Hammontree so that they can help you determine how to get the monetary help you need.
