Standing Up For The Rights Of Injured Workers
Most Americans rely on their jobs to provide for their families, create a comfortable and high quality of life, keep a roof over their heads and put food on the table. So getting injured on the job could put you between a rock and a hard place: Do you take time off of work to recover and suffer the loss of wages? Do you seek legal action due to negligence of an employer? Do you continue to work despite your injuries for fear of losing wages and being unable to provide for your family? An experienced workers’ compensation attorney from Faucette Law Firm LLC in Douglasville is more than adept to help you navigate through these complicated questions. With knowledge of workers’ compensation laws and personal injury laws that govern and protect workers in Georgia, an attorney can help determine the best legal options for your personal circumstances. Most of all, a knowledgeable workers’ compensation lawyer can protect your rights as a hardworking, productive American and ensure that your quality of life does not suffer due to negligence at the workplace.
Starting The Healing Process With Legal Assistance
The purpose of workers’ compensation is to provide financial benefits and relief to workers who were harmed or injured on the job. In Georgia, some jobs are more dangerous than others, resulting in a higher potential for fatal or catastrophic injuries. This makes it even more important for workers to have workers’ compensation insurance. Personal injuries can lead to expensive medical and hospital bills, or rehabilitation expenses, including medicines or prescriptions. Many victims find themselves caught in a vicious cycle and do not know how to pay for these expenses due to taking time off of work to recover. A highly skilled lawyer can advocate on your behalf to ensure that your rights are protected after a serious job-related injury or a family member’s wrongful death so that you can focus on recovery and healing.
