Medical Issues & Treatment
People who have been injured at work are frequently confused about exactly what legal options are available to them and who should be allowed to make decisions about their medical issues and treatment. Employers and insurers are not generally forthcoming with employees about certain rights and options available after a work-related injury. At George & Wallach, L.L.L.P., we represent injured workers. We want injured workers to know they do have rights and options available to address medical issues. Employers will often tell employees they are required to see the company doctor, when in fact this is not the “whole truth.”
As an injured worker, you have rights. You do not have to see doctor who has been selected by your employer. Call 404-381-1920 or use our online contact form to schedule a free consultation with an attorney from George & Wallach, L.L.L.P. We have been helping injured workers and their families in Clayton County and elsewhere in Georgia for over 60 years.
The Company Doctor
In Georgia, employers are required by law to post a panel of physicians that are available to workers in the event of an injury. Injured workers are often under the impression that they must bring their injuries and medical issues to the company doctor and no additional options. Our firm encourages clients to contact us. We help injured workers learn more about their rights and the options their employers do not tell them about. We help workers from a wide range of industries who suffer from injuries such as:
- Catastrophic injuries
- Chronic pain
- Herniated disks
- Ruptured disks
- Head injuries
- Neck injuries
- Back injuries
- Hand and wrist injuries
If you or someone you love has been injured at work, the medical issues you face can take a long time, requiring many years of treatment. Do not let an insurance company tell you when it is time to settle your claim. We believe injured workers with incomplete medical treatment or the possibility of future treatment should carefully consider future costs prior to accepting a settlement.
Our firm is committed to providing injured workers with strong legal advocacy. This means we settle when it is in the best interest of our clients — not when it is convenient for an insurance company. Call 404-381-1920 or reach us online to meet with a lawyer at our firm.
