Let Us Help You Get All The Workers’ Comp Benefits You Are Owed
If you have suffered a work-related injury or illness, you could be entitled to substantial workers’ compensation until you can work again. However, getting approved for the full workers’ comp benefits you deserve can be difficult, especially if your employer is not cooperative.
We practice workers’ compensation law throughout the Augusta area, including parts of South Carolina. For a free consultation with an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer, please call us in Augusta at 706-770-6783 or complete our contact form. We can help.
How We Can Help
Since 1993, attorney George Bush has practiced injury law and insurance law, providing strong, ethical representation to injured workers. He can help you if you need to file a claim for benefits, or if you have already been turned down for workers’ compensation. We can handle all the necessary paperwork on your behalf, and help ensure that you get fair treatment during the application and appeals processes. We have the knowledge and experience to represent employees in all industries in the Augusta area, including construction workers, factory workers, nurses, warehouse employees and more.
What Workers’ Comp Can Pay For
With few exceptions, if a loved one is killed or if you are injured on the job while working for another individual or entity, you are entitled to workers’ compensation. Under the Georgia and South Carolina workers’ compensation laws, you may be entitled to compensation for:
- Lost wages during your recovery
- Necessary medical expenses
- Any disability or disfigurement you suffer as a result of your injury
In workers’ compensation cases, you are not required to show that your employer was negligent or at fault. Also, if your own mistake at work led to your injury, that does not bar you from receiving workers’ comp benefits. The workers’ compensation laws in Georgia and South Carolina also apply to occupational diseases contracted as a result of employment.
Keep in mind that your rights to compensation may be waived or barred if you do not comply with time limitations for providing notice to your employer and filing your claim. If you have been injured while on the job, please contact us immediately.
