We Can Step In

Individuals that work in industries involving heavy machinery, construction, or transportation have a higher percentage of work related injuries.

Then you begin to worry if your employer will try to deny what happened, and if you will get the benefits that you need while you are out of work to support your family. That is where we can step in and help make sure that you receive the medical treatment and compensation you deserve .

Workers' Compensation

What is Workers' Compensation?

Workers' compensation is the system of laws nationwide that govern how an accident on the job is handled. Your employer has (hopefully) paid for workers' compensation insurance to assist injured workers, but the rules of workers' comp are very different than any other type of accident. The insurance is designed to help cover your lost wages and medical bills while you are out of work due to an injury that was sustained on the job.

Not every accident attorney has the expertise to handle workers' compensation claims. In addition, not every workers' comp attorney has the expertise to know when you have a claim against an outside company in addition to your workers' compensation claim. That's why it is so important to find a firm like Brooks Injury Law, that can handle both workers' compensation and "third party" claims, so you get every penny you are entitled to under the law.

Common injuries that workers' compensation can cover are:

Loss of eye sight
Hearing damage
Loss of a body part
Head injuries from falling objects
Burns
Sprains, strains, or tears
Injury to the neck, back, or shoulders
Work-related slip and falls

Workers' Compensation Facts

In Georgia, the law requires any business with three or more workers, including part-time employees, to have workers' compensation insurance.
In order to receive workers' compensation benefits, you must be considered an employee rather than an independent contractor (just because you get paid as a 1099 contractor does not mean you are not an employee).
Your injury must have been the result from an accident that occurred on the job. Workers' compensation cannot cover pre-existing injuries.
It is illegal for your employer to retaliate if you file a workers' compensation claim against them.

Natanya is a great lawyer. She has been with me since day one of the accident. She is very attentive. She stays on tops of things and even came to my house. She got me way more money than I thought and was very responsive.
