When individuals in Georgia and elsewhere leave their home and head to work, they expect to return home in the same condition. In other words, employers do not expect to experience harms in the workplace, resulting in injuries, illness or even a disability. Unfortunately, any workplace could pose risks to workers, making it important for workers in all industries to explore their rights and options after suffering harm on-the-job.
Workplace accidents vary from worker to worker and from industry to industry. They could be the result of a fall from a great height, due to heavy machinery malfunctions, negligence of an employer, employee or third-party, because of lifting heavy items, repetitive motions or even a car accident while on-the-job.
At Murphy & Garner, LLC, our attorneys understand that serious and even disabling workplace injuries can significantly impact a worker. It not only causes them to obtain necessary medical attention, but it could also mean ongoing treatment, rehabilitation, therapy and other medical treatments. It could also mean taking time off from work to recover or because of the inability to work.
The damages and losses suffered are unique to each worker, and our law firm takes that into consideration when working with our clients to recovering workers’ compensation. And if our clients are denied these benefits, we are prepared to help our clients with the appeals process.
