You May Think Your Employer Will Take Care of You, But Employers Look Out for Themselves!
You may be under the impression that if you are injured at work and you do not hire a lawyer, your employer will do what's right and what it takes to help you get through your injury. You may think that your employer will take care of you and your family. Unfortunately, many workers find that the reality is a very different story. The "nice guys" end up finishing last.
Businesses have profits and losses to account for and shareholders to report to. An experienced workers’ compensation attorney knows that employers have human resource directors, office managers, risk managers and other employees whose sole jobs are to try to minimize the medical and indemnity costs associated with any work injury.
Time and time again, we have seen relationships between a faithful, hard-working employee and their employer change for the worse after a work injury. It feels like just when you need their support most, your employer simply views you as a liability.
As you consider hiring a workers’ compensation lawyer, it’s important to realize that employers are also relying on their workers’ compensation insurance companies and their defense lawyers to help them “minimize costs”. Without a workers’ compensation attorney, you will face a difficult uphill battle.
The Georgia workers’ compensation attorneys at Susan J. Sadow, P.C. have years of experience. We are experts at guiding our clients as they navigate through a system that is often stacked against injured workers.
Georgia workers’ compensation law involves complex statutes, regulations and procedural rules that govern the benefits injured workers are entitled to receive and how those benefits are paid. These statutes, regulations and rules also specify the complex procedures to be followed when there is a dispute between an injured worker and the employer and their insurance company.
You can bet your employer and their workers’ compensation carrier know these complex guidelines inside and out. So do we! They also know that working through the statutes and rules is confusing and frustrating for the injured party – you. They try to use this to their advantage, to make sure that they delay approval of your medical treatment and pay as little as possible when it comes to benefits or settlement of your case. We won't let that happen!
