Georgia Workers Compensation Lawyer
I had a client who worked for the Georgia Department of Corrections. He worked in one of the prisons. He suffered a horrific back injury. He was trying to break a fight between two inmates.
He was in the worker's compensation system for quite a while.
In Georgia, if you're in the system for over 400 weeks, your income benefits stop unless your claim is deemed as catastrophic.
He came to us and we did everything we could to help him, and I'm happy to say that we did.
And the best thing about it is, I didn't have to take him to court to do it. I simply just listened to everything he told me. I drafted a great brief highlighting the things that he had been going through. I discussed his treatment plan with his doctors. And after outlining everything to the insurance company, they accepted the case as catastrophic.
So as we sit here today, he is still getting the income benefits that he needs, that he deserves. He's getting the treatment that he needs and deserves, and that's really what was important to him.
