Our law firm has extensive knowledge of workplace injuries, including herniated discs, back injuries, neck injuries, closed head injuries, electrocution, carpal tunnel syndrome, and construction accidents. Akin & Tate assists injured employees through the workers’ compensation process, which often includes applying for benefits, negotiating retroactive lump sum settlements, and speaking on behalf of claimants at appeals hearings.
The workers’ compensation lawyers at Akin & Tate go beyond the simple aspects of helping injured Georgia workers make routine and satisfactory claims. We also attempt to intercede with doctors to secure their agreement, forbearing payment for services until worker’s compensation settlements are awarded and paid out.
In this way, clients injured on the job can concentrate on getting well, receiving appropriate treatment and therapy, and learning to cope with their reduced employment capacity. Our law firm is committed to ensuring that clients’ needs are met as fully as possible before settling a workers’ compensation claim.
