If you suffer an on-the-job injury, or suffer an “occupational disease” (a disease resulting from work), you are eligible for workers’ comp benefits. Almost every employer in Georgia must, by law, carry workers’ compensation disability benefits, and you can get compensation regardless of who is at fault.
At Brown & Scoccimaro, P.C., our workers’ compensation lawyers can help anyone in Georgia who has been wrongfully denied benefits or is applying for benefits. Our attorneys will meet with you free of charge, and if we take your case, we will do all work on contingency, only getting paid once you get the benefits you need.
Reasons for Denied Workers’ Compensation Benefits
Workman’s compensation benefits are available for anyone suffering from a workplace accident or occupational disease in the course of their work, except in certain cases. You can be denied coverage if your claim involves;
Injuries that were self-inflicted
Injuries suffered while committing a serious crime
Injuries suffered while not on the job
Injuries suffered while intoxicated
Your employer might try to claim that one of the above exemptions applies to your case, when it really does not. With more than 28 years of experience helping thousands of victims of personal injury and wrongful death, our attorneys can fight any employer. We prepare every case for trial, which gives us an edge even when an employer wants to settle out of court.
Helping Victims of Serious Injuries in Georgia
Very serious catastrophic injuries can occur in workplace accidents, especially in construction accidents and industrial accidents. Our workers’ compensation lawyers have helped victims of everything from debilitating injuries, including back injuries, neck injuries, and head injuries, to less serious injuries such as repetitive stress injury (RSI). In the area of workers’ compensation, our lawyers are also known for their work in THC drug test issues.
