Savannah Workers' Compensation Attorney

Personal Injury Attorney Serving Injured Workers

Suffering an injury at work can be one of the most distressing experiences. You may feel like no one is on your side and that you are suffering without support. If this sounds like you, turn to our Savannah workers’ compensation lawyers at Vaught Law Firm, P.C.

Unfortunately, insurance carriers have been known to deny claims or offer far less compensation than employees need and deserve. This is why you should hire a workers’ compensation lawyer, who can stand up to the insurance company and help ensure that your needs are met.

We can fight for the compensation you deserve by gathering evidence and even filing a complaint against the insurance company to the Georgia workers’ compensation board.

We represent workers who have been injured on the job, helping ensure that they receive the compensation they are entitled to. Contact us online or call us at (912) 335-5000 for a free case evaluation.

When Should You Hire A Workers' Compensation Attorney?

Victims of workplace accidents are often uncertain if they will benefit from the expertise of an attorney when filing a workers' compensation claim. Many people will accept a settlement that is less than they deserve or their claim may be unjustly denied and they are unaware that they deserved more.

Consulting an experienced attorney can help you understand the complexities of your case and help ensure that your claim is handled quickly and properly.

Victims of workplace injuries may benefit from consulting an attorney in many instances including:

  • Your claim has been denied
  • Your ability to work has been affected
  • You experience difficulties in getting the treatment you need

When Should You Report Your Workplace Injury?

If you’ve been injured on the job, you should report it to your supervisor as soon as possible. The State Board of Workers’ Compensation provides financial benefits for employees who were injured while working. These benefits include coverage for medical and rehabilitation costs, as well as recovery for lost income while on leave.

You can receive workers’ compensation for injuries that involved someone else’s negligence, or even if the accident involved some responsibility on your part. Employees are not eligible for workers’ compensation, however, if their injuries occurred as a result of willful misconduct. Accidents that occurred at least in part due to an employee’s inattention or honest mistake can still be covered.

What Are the Most Common Workers' Comp Claims?

Common workers’ compensation claims include:

  • Injury or harm related to overexertion at work (e.g. lifting, pushing, or pulling heavy objects)
  • Slips, trips, and falls
  • Injuries caused by bodily reactions to actions like standing, bending, climbing, sitting, etc.
  • Injuries caused by equipment or falling objects

Call on a Firm with 20+ Years of Experience

In Georgia, you cannot receive workers’ compensation for pain and suffering, but you can file a personal injury claim against a responsible third-party (other than your employer) to pursue that type of damages. Don’t let insurance companies minimize your injury claim, leaving you with great financial burdens.
