We Help Injured Employees Pursue Workers’ Compensation
A work-related injury can not only sideline you from your job; it can also lead to financial, physical and emotional setbacks. Depending on the severity of your work injury, you might not know when – or if – you’ll be able to return to work. When you’re already dealing with medical treatments and financial worries, navigating the workers’ compensation process can be an overwhelming hurdle to tackle alone.
At Morris & Dean, LLC, our workers’ compensation attorneys serve as strong advocates and advisors for injured workers and their loved ones. Based in Dalton, Georgia, and also serving Chattanooga, and Cleveland, we have more than 60 years of experience helping injury victims pursue the compensation they deserve.
Hurt In A Manufacturing Or Construction Job?
Manufacturing employees face countless hazards on the job every day, from falls to lifting injuries, to equipment accidents and repetitive stress injuries. Our lawyers are familiar with these kinds of cases. We represent employees from all industries, including from companies such as Shaw Industries, Inc./U.S. Floors, Mohawk Industries and Engineered Floors.
We also represent construction workers who get hurt on the job. If a third party was negligent, you may have grounds to pursue a personal injury claim in addition to workers’ comp. A third party is someone other than your employer – for example, another driver in a job-related traffic accident.
Understanding The Process (And Your Rights)
Far too many injured workers don’t seek the benefits they deserve because they’re afraid of hurting or offending their employer. Please know that you aren’t hurting your employer by exercising your rights. And the law protects you from retaliation or discrimination related to your filing a workers’ comp claim.
Understand, however, that the Georgia workers’ compensation system can be complicated. There are numerous deadlines and requirements to follow. Missteps such as missing a deadline or failing to provide adequate medical evidence could derail your claim.
The sooner we get involved, the better. Our attorneys can help you build a strong workers’ comp case from the outset.
Even if your claim has been denied, we can review your case and assist you with pursuing a better outcome through an appeal.
