We have jokingly told many of our clients that “Georgia is a great place to live, but do not get hurt working here.” Compared to many other states, Georgia’s workers’ compensation laws heavily favor employers and insurance companies and work against injured employees.

From having one of the lowest weekly benefit rates for disabled workers to very conservative, pro-business courts that tend to issue decisions in favor of businesses as opposed to workers, the odds are stacked against you in Georgia if you’re pursuing benefits after a work injury. Fortunately, you won’t have to fight for compensation alone. Our legal professional at Burdine & Brown in Suwanee, Georgia, will be by your side every step of the way.

Put Decades of Experience on Your Side

Our attorney, Tom Brown, has been practicing for more than four decades, and he is still incredibly passionate about the work that he does every single day. A dedicated advocate for injured workers, Attorney Brown’s goal is to help hardworking people secure weekly income benefits, medical treatment, and a possible settlement so they can move forward.

About Workers’ Compensation

All businesses and workplaces in the state of Georgia that have three or more employees are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance to protect their injured employees. If you suffer a workplace accident, your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance provider will usually pay for your medical treatment.

Are You Entitled to Benefits?

Injured employees who are unable to work are entitled to income benefits amounting to two-thirds of their average weekly wages up to $675. Those who lose the use of any body part, sustain catastrophic injuries, or face other severe effects as a result of a work-related injury may be entitled to additional benefits.

Unfortunately, insurance company claims adjusters do not usually inform injured workers of the full benefits they are owed. They are only looking out for their own best interests. For this reason, you need an advocate in your corner who will fight for you. Turn to Burdine & Brown to get the committed counsel you need to ensure your future is protected.
