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.
