Understanding the laws surrounding Workers' Compensation is difficult for the average person. Adding to that confusion, the laws often change, so you may need legal counsel. An attorney who is up to date on the laws will better protect your rights.
Additionally, you may have little say when it comes to choosing your doctor. Your employer and their insurance carrier are able to make decisions regarding your care and who treats you.
Because your employer is the one who pays for your medical care, you may think you have no rights. However, as an employee, you have more rights than you might think. Learning about them can be done with the help of an Atlanta Workers’ Compensation attorney.
If you don’t agree with the treatment plan or the diagnosis of your doctor, you don’t have to go by it; you may be able to challenge it. However, you shouldn’t attempt to do this alone. You will need experienced legal counsel.
In addition, if you find that your claim has been denied, and your employer tries to claim your injuries weren’t work-related, you may need help. Speaking to an attorney about your Georgia Workers' Comp case may save you a lot of hassle and confusion.
Don’t delay seeking help from an Atlanta Workers’ Compensation attorney when you are concerned that your rights are being violated. An attorney may be able to assist you throughout the entire claims process.
