Workers’ Comp Injury Claims
Workers’ compensation is a type of insurance that gives an employee injured during the completion of their job duties wage replacement and medical benefits. If you are covered by workers’ compensation, you can’t file a direct personal injury lawsuit against your employer. But, to ensure that you recover your medical costs and other expenses, as well as lost wages and disability benefits, you need a lawyer well versed in the intricacies of the workers’ compensation system. Workers’ compensation lawyer Dwayne L. Brown has been protecting the rights of injured workers in Georgia for years and will tirelessly pursue the workers’ compensation benefits you deserve.
Workers’ compensation insurance covers four basic elements for injured workers. Benefits can include compensation for the following elements:
- Medical and treatment cost for work-related injuries
- Weekly income for temporary total disability (TTD) for employees unable to work due to an on-the-job injury or temporary partial disability (TPD) for employees making less money due to a work-related injury
- Payment for a permanent partial disability (PPD) rating issued from a doctor
- Death benefit for worker-related accidents
Workers’ comp insurance in Georgia is required by any business with three or more employees. While it does cover most work-related injuries, the complexities of the system can short-change some workers trying to obtain benefits. Dwayne L. Brown works with injured workers to help them receive the most benefit from their claim and are treated fairly through the process.
