Workers' Compensation Settlements in Atlanta, GA
Help from Our Atlanta Workers' Compensation Attorneys
There are two ways in which you can get through your
workers’ compensation issues; one is through a workers’ compensation settlement agreement
and the other is through mediation. A settlement agreement is an efficient
way of obtaining the benefits you need related to your injury. A mediation
is a meeting of several parties to solve the issue of your medical benefits.
Many people who have experienced an injury on the job find themselves experiencing
any of the following:
- Struggles to pay bills and take care of their families
- Physical or emotional pain
- Time taken off work or away from your family for legal issues
If you are in this unfortunate situation, settlement of your workers’
compensation claim, if done timely and correctly, can be a good way to
get the money you need, when you need it.
Reaching an Agreement
A settlement should only be reached if it is fair to you. That’s
why it’s important to seek the help of an experienced, well-qualified
workers’ compensation attorney in Atlanta before you settle. We
have a proven record of successfully helping clients settle their claims
through negotiations and mediations.
Alternatively, when the time is not right to settle or the insurance company
is unreasonable with its offer, we can counsel you through those hard
times and pursue litigation of your claim if necessary.
What to Expect in Mediation
Mediation is an informal settlement conference. Mediations are attended
by you, your attorney and the insurance company’s attorney and/or
claims adjuster. The mediation is facilitated by a mediator from either
the State Board of Workers’ Compensation or a private service.
At Cummings & Middlebrooks, LLP, our
Atlanta workers’ compensation lawyers are experienced negotiators. We work hard to get you the full amount of
compensation to which you may be entitled. While we guide you through
the settlement process, it is always your decision when to settle your
claim and for how much.
