On a daily basis, a loading dock can have dozens of trucks, in some cases hundreds, dropping off merchandise and picking up a new shipment to transport - weighing in the tons. With the kinds of weight being loaded and unloaded by people operating forklifts, the danger of a worksite accident occurring is high.

Many companies ignore the required safety regulations passed in the state of Georgia, which can lead to worksite accidents such as serious or fatal loading dock accidents.

If you've been injured in a loading dock accident in Georgia, an Atlanta worksite lawyer can investigate your claim to see if any third-parties are liable for your claim in addition to helping you protect your Workers' Compensation claim.

In many cases it is not unusual for your Workers' Compensation claim to be reduced or denied based on factors such as a lack of accurate documentation surrounding the accident or pre-existing medical conditions. Working with an Atlanta worksite injury lawyer can help you through every step of the Workers' Compensation process.

While people often believe that Workers' Compensation will cover all of their needs, that compensation still goes through an insurance company that's looking out for its own needs, not yours. That's why it can be so beneficial to have an experienced Atlanta worksite injury lawyer on your side to help you navigate the paperwork, exams, and roadblocks that may occur while you apply for Workers' Compensation benefits.
