Protecting You in the Alabama and Georgia Workplace
While we all expect to work in a safe environment, the unfortunate reality is that job-related injuries are a common occurrence in both Georgia and Alabama. If you or someone you know has recently been hurt on the clock, you’ll need to move quickly — state laws limit the amount of time available to file a suit.
First Things First — Seek Treatment
Even if you don’t believe your injury requires medical treatment, it’s always best to err on the side of caution. You can never be too careful when it comes to health and safety, especially when your financial well-being is at stake.
Now Tell Your Boss!
You won’t be able to proceed with your workers’ compensation claim until your employer is properly informed of your injury. While you technically have 90 days to notify your boss, we recommend telling her or him as soon as possible.
Buckle Up (So to Speak)
Workers’ compensation suits can be grueling. In addition to grappling with your recovery, you’ll likely also face substantial medical expenses and a time-consuming recovery. Kick back and focus on getting better. The seasoned personal injury attorneys at Quinn, Connor, Weaver, Davies & Rouco LLP will take care of the rest.
