Macon, GA Workers’ Compensation
Even if you don’t work in a dangerous environment, you still run the risk of being injured at work. Workers’ compensation laws were enacted to protect those who have been injured on the job, and to provide financial relief during a stressful period in their lives. Most workers’ compensation claims are processed quickly and the injured party receives their compensation without issue. However, sometimes your insurance company can complicate the process and deny your deserved compensation.
If you or a loved one has been injured on the job, and your insurance company has denied your claim, contact our Macon office today. We understand that the price for pain is infinite, which is why we’ll fight for your full and fair compensation.

What Can a Workers’ Compensation Lawyer Do?
Any injury that occurs while on the job and limits the employee’s ability to perform their duties is grounds for a workers’ compensation claim. An experienced workers’ compensation lawyer will take your case seriously, and fight for your restitution.
If an on-the-job accident has resulted in any of the following, you may qualify for a workers’ compensation claim:
- Occupational diseases or impairments (Mesothelioma, radiation sickness, hearing loss)
- Head injuries (Concussions, serious brain injuries)
- Other acute physical injuries (Herniated discs, broken bones, torn ligaments)
Who Can File a Workers’ Compensation Claim?
Georgia law states that an individual who has been injured on the job is eligible to recover:
- Medical costs (treatment, supplies, ongoing care)
- Lost wages/disability benefits
- Funeral costs/death benefits (in the case of wrongful death)
Your injury could qualify for compensation, but your employer or insurance provider could be trying to minimize your benefits.
At Morgan & Morgan, we take more cases to trial than any other personal injury firm. Insurance companies know this, and are more likely to compensate you fairly than fight a losing battle in court.
How Do You Appeal A Workers’ Compensation Claim?
A denied workers’ compensation claim doesn’t mean you aren’t eligible for coverage, despite what the insurance companies want you to think. Some insurance providers will attempt to diminish or outright deny your injury to avoid paying your coverage. This is unfortunately all too common.
If your claim has been denied, you still have the option of appealing the verdict. However, an appeal has to be processed within 30 days of the notice of denial so it’s important to file quickly.
Can I Afford a Lawyer?
While other personal injury firms may carry high price tags for their representation, we’re the opposite. Our lawyers operate on a contingency, meaning we don’t get paid until you do. Our fee comes out of the favorable settlement or jury award, so you never have to pay out of pocket for our assistance.
