The process of filing for and receiving workers’ compensation is complex and may cause a great deal of frustration to those who are not familiar with it.

At the Barnett Law Firm, in Decatur, Georgia, we understand that many of the people who come to our firm are concerned about many of the same issues, including:

  • Am I entitled to benefits?

Workers’ compensation benefits are designed to provide an injured employee with the money and medical care that he or she deserves until that employee is able to return to work. We work hard to make sure that the system treats claimants the way that they deserve to be treated.

Injuries and Conditions Covered by Workers’ Compensation

Workers’ compensation covers nearly all types of physical injuries and illnesses that are work-related. Commonly covered injuries and conditions include:

Psychological and emotional injuries are also covered in some cases when they contribute to more severe physical injuries. Pre-existing conditions that are aggravated while at work may be covered but it needs to be shown how the employment contributed to the aggravation.

Steps to Take After an Injury at Work

If you are injured at work, your first steps should be to obtain necessary emergency treatment and to notify your employer as soon as possible about the injury. After all parties have been notified, you should consult with a workers’ compensation attorney about your claim. By speaking with a lawyer as early in the process as possible, you can get knowledgeable advice on how to proceed and avoid the landmines and pitfalls encountered by many injured workers.
