Being injured at work changes your life. It puts unnecessary stress on your family and makes it impossible to pay your bills. It can leave you with chronic pain or keep you in bed.
The good news is that workers’ compensation benefits can bring tremendous relief by providing wage replacement and medical care that you really need if you are hurt. The bad news is that benefits often don’t come without a fight, even to those who clearly need them right away.
As experienced workers' compensation attorney's we can help you get the workers’ compensation benefits you are entitled to receive. Call us today at (229) 244-7171 to get started.

Suffering from a work-related injury does not preclude you from seeking compensation from third parties. In many work-related injury cases there is more than one party at fault. Besides seeking workers’ compensation benefits from your employer’s workers’ compensation carrier, you also have the right to bring a lawsuit against other negligent parties such as the manufacturer of defective machinery.
Please speak to our experienced attorneys who understand workers’ compensation laws and how to hold other parties accountable. We will explore every option in maximizing your recovery.
