Estimates suggest that as many as one out of every four people will become disabled before the end of their working life. Most people don’t have private disability coverage and Social Security can be difficult to qualify for. You cannot sue your employer for negligence in a civil suit if you get hurt, so you may have only one chance to get the money you need to pay your medical bills and to provide disability income after an on-the-job injury. Let an experienced Savannah, Georgia workers' compensation lawyer guide you through the workers' compensation claims process so you can secure your financial future by obtaining the benefits you deserve.

YOUR RIGHTS AFTER A SAVANNAH, GEORGIA WORKPLACE INJURY
Throughout the United States, workers' compensation laws were passed to protect workers and to ensure they did not face financial disaster if they got hurt or sick while on the job. Workers' compensation benefits are comprehensive and include:
  • Payment of 100 percent of medical costs.
  • Lost wages.
  • Disability benefits for temporary or permanent total or partial disabilities.
If you get sick or injured in any way, your employer’s workers' compensation coverage should take care of you financially until you are able to get back on your feet. If you cannot ever return to work, then the workers' compensation disability insurance benefits should ensure you can provide for yourself and your family.

To ensure that all workers were protected, workers' compensation laws imposed strict liability on employers. This means that regardless of whether an employer was negligent (or whether you made mistakes), you should be able to make a workers' compensation claim. If your claim is denied or if your employer tries to refuse you any of the benefits you deserve, something is wrong. A Savannah workers' compensation attorney can review your situation and help you to get the money and coverage you deserve.
