Brunswick Worker's Compensation
You don’t have to be employed in a dangerous industry to be at risk for injury; even those who work in safer roles can still find themselves injured and unable to work. If an on-the-job accident is preventing you from earning a paycheck, you may file a workers’ compensation claim for financial assistance.
However, many individuals are initially denied workers’ compensation benefits. Insurance companies and unethical employers will attempt to diminish or deny your claim out of financial greed, which is unacceptable by any means, by claiming your injury is exaggerated, that it occurred elsewhere, or that it doesn’t exist at all. They don’t want to pay you what you deserve, so let us fight for you.
You always have the right to appeal a denied claim. The process is, however, complicated, so it’s a good idea to team up with a firm that will give your case the attention it deserves. Our specialized workers’ compensation lawyers have years of experience and will fight tirelessly for the compensation you’re entitled to.
If you or a loved one have been injured in an on-the-job accident, and your workers’ compensation claim was unjustly denied, contact our Brunswick office today.

What is Workers’ Compensation?
Workers’ compensation is an insurance program that acts as a financial safety net for those who are unable to work due to injury. When an employee is involved in an on-the-job accident, they file a claim with their employer that is sent to the insurance provider of the business. However, some employers will refuse to file your claim. To navigate around this, Georgia law allows you to file your claim directly with the insurance company for up to one year after your accident
Georgia’s workers’ compensation is designated as a “no-fault system,” meaning an injured worker can still receive benefits even if they caused the accident. There is no burden to prove negligence, which allows us to focus on your compensation.
What Types of Injuries Qualify for Workers’ Compensation?
There are many different injuries that qualify for workers’ compensation benefits, but here are a few common examples:
- Head injuries
- Torn muscles/ligaments, broken bones
- Burns (both chemical and heat)
- Occupational illnesses (Mesothelioma)
- Loss of limbs or extremities
- Repetitive motion/aggravation injuries (tendonitis)
After your accident, it’s important to report the situation to your employer as soon as possible. Georgia allows up to 30 days from the date of your accident to file your claim, so it’s important to not waste time. You should also make sure to include as much information about your accident as possible, as this can prevent a third party from devaluing your claim in the future.
