Protecting The Rights Of Injured Workers

Without warning, a workplace accident can change every aspect of your life. A once-promising career may be at an end. When you need to get benefits through Georgia’s workers’ compensation laws, the physical trauma you experienced is often only the beginning of your challenges.

In the Peach State, workers’ comp regulations exist to protect you. However, in the aftermath of a job-related injury, some employers will attempt to terminate workers or their insurers will deny the injury claim, leaving the worker to navigate the aftermath and recovery without any type of compensation. Losing your job and your existing benefits may become a reality, regardless of existing laws.

Overcoming The Obstacles

At The Law Offices of Peter Meyer, P.C., our attorney Peter Meyer helps to even the odds for Georgia-based workers facing health issues following an accident at work. Employing his more than 25+ years of experience in personal injury claims, we can help you potentially secure:

  • Medical costs
  • Valid permanent impairment ratings
  • Prescriptions
  • Mileage
  • Lost wages

For those who are terminated, your options are not limited. We fight for the compensation you are entitled to for the on-the-job injuries you suffered.

The rights of injured workers under workers’ compensation laws are numerous, ranging from medical treatments and rehabilitation to death benefits. Additional assistance can include:

  • Medications and associated travel costs to and from the physician
  • Vocational rehab training to learn new skills if and injured employee cannot return to their previous position
  • Weekly income benefits under certain qualifications
  • For catastrophic injuries, two-thirds of your average weekly salary indefinitely until you are capable of returning to work
  • Non-catastrophic Injuries that may entitle workers to two-thirds of your average weekly salary, up to 400 weeks

In spite of laws in place, employers and insurers may still try to work around the regulations to save a few dollars and pad their bottom lines.

Holding Employers Accountable

Unfortunately, in many instances, an employer or their insurer does not meet their legal obligation to pay for the treatment and income benefits required under the law. Attorney Peter Meyer works on your behalf to secure the maximum compensation you are entitled to during difficult and trying times.
