Workers’ Compensation Lawyer in Savannah

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.

We represent workers who have been injured on the job, helping ensure that they receive the compensation they are entitled to.

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.

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.

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

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.

Have to Say

  • He had a strong work ethic and gave his all without any guarantee of financial gain. I would highly recommend anyone seeking legal advice to give The Vaught Law Firm a call first.

    “Vaught Law Firm is a wonderful and professional organization. After hearing some tragic news about my mother's sudden change in health, I called the Vaught Law Firm without any prior knowledge of them or any other lawyers in the area. As soon as I called, I received nothing but full unconditional support from the office of John Vaught. He was able to meet with me immediately and gave me his full attention. Mr. Vaught was always professional and offered assistance in everyway possible that he could. He was available after hours and whenever needed. The most impressive aspect about his law firm was how he conducted business. He was very personable and really cared about the case regardless of how it turned out. I admired how he conducted business because it felt like it was more than just business. Furthermore, Mr. Vaught never mentioned any fees and never worked conditional upon any promise of money. He had a strong work ethic and gave his all without any guarantee of financial gain. I would highly recommend anyone seeking legal advice to give The Vaught Law Firm a call first.”

  • John is very professional, and courteous, and I felt very comfortable and at ease having him handle my case. I will certainly work with him again should I find myself in the need.

    “I contacted John Vaught to represent me in a case recently concerning the death of my wife. He was recommended to me by someone that worked in the legal system while I was asking for a lawyer with knowledge and integrity. From the time of my initial interview with John, throughout the entire case, I found that he is indeed very knowledgeable of law and procedure. I was very impressed that, not only could he tell me what the law was on a given point, he also had the experience to tell me how the process was going to go, what the opposing lawyers were thinking, and even tell me what time frame was normal. Nothing was ever left out or forgotten, the process moved along very smoothly, and John kept me very informed of what was going on and what I needed to do the entire time. I also found John to be a man of integrity. It was very important to me that I not get a lawyer that was only interested in money with no respect or feelings for people. I believe that John is truly a man that cares about people, and is genuinely interested in truth and justice in any situation, an he was completely truthful with me through the whole process. John is very professional, and courteous, and I felt very comfortable and at ease having him handle my case. I will certainly work with him again should I find myself in the need.”
