The Cochran Firm Atlanta is the premier firm in The Big Peach for workers’ compensation attorneys. Our staff has the expertise and experience to fight corporations, businesses and insurance companies to get you what you deserve and what you need.
Workers’ compensation is insurance. You do not pay for it. Your employer does. If you are injured on the job, you are eligible to apply for benefits under workers’ comp. Employers are required to post information sheets in a public place telling you about the insurance.
You do have some responsibilities under workers’ comp. You must:
- Report the injury to your employer promptly.
- Seek medical attention from one of the medical care providers listed on the information sheet.
- Follow-up with any other appointments the doctor recommends.
- Follow the doctor’s advice.
Regardless of the injury, you have a right to be seen by a doctor. Worker’s comp pays all the medical bills, including prescriptions.
If your employer or the insurance company attempt to argue about the injury, do not discuss the problem with them. You need an Atlanta Workers’ Compensation Attorney. Contact us immediately. Anything you tell your employer or the insurance company could be used to deny or limit your claim. As Atlanta’s top workers’ compensation attorney firm, we have seen employers and insurance companies try to deny you justice. We have seen how they try to trample your rights.
GET THE WORKERS’ COMPENSATION THAT YOU DESERVE
Insurance companies do not like to pay claims. As profit-driven companies, they are not interested in helping the people they insure. They seek to keep as much money as possible and not support the people who need help. Employers try to deny claims because an approved claim causes premiums to go up. Claims may also spur a workplace safety investigation.
Employers have a duty and responsibility to provide a safe work environment. Workers’ compensation protects the company in case the work environment is not as safe as it should be.
Workers’ compensation insurance is paid to help and protect you. It is there for you to use when you need it. It is your right to file claims and receive benefits. If your claim has been denied, contact us immediately.
