Navigating Your Workers’ Compensation Benefits With You
Let’s say that you suffer an injury or illness on the job. You can no longer work, so you lose your source of income. Your medical bills are piling up and show no sign of stopping. You are preparing to file a workers’ compensation claim, and you are wondering what types of benefits are available.
We can help you understand the benefits to which you are entitled. We are Rogers, Hofrichter & Karrh, LLC, a workers’ compensation and disability law firm serving greater Atlanta. Since 1993, our workers’ compensation attorneys have helped injured workers maximize their benefits so they can continue with their lives.
What Benefits Are Available?
In the early 1900s, states across the U.S. began passing laws to ensure that workers injured in the course of their jobs received compensation. Today, every state has some form of workers’ compensation legislation. In Georgia, workers’ compensation offers the following benefits:
- Necessary medical treatment
- Ambulance costs
- Hospitalization and emergency room fees
- Prescription medications
- Physical rehabilitation
- Therapeutic equipment
- Vocational training
If you lost a loved one in a workplace accident, you may also receive survivor death benefits to cover burial costs, lost wages and more.
Should You Hire A Workers’ Compensation Attorney?
Insurance companies do everything they can to avoid paying the full value of your claim. Often, it takes a workers’ compensation legal team to stand up to the insurance company and put your benefits into your hands. Even if you already had your claim denied, do not give up – we can file an appeal and represent you at your hearing. Our workers’ compensation benefits lawyers explore every method available for getting benefits for you, even if it means going to court.
