Workers’ Compensation Attorneys You Can Trust
If you have received a WC104 — the form that notifies you that your temporary total disability benefits under workers’ compensation will be reduced or revoked — you need to talk to a lawyer immediately. Additionally, if you have received a WC2, notifying you that your benefits will be suspended, you will need to consult an experienced attorney.
Our attorneys have the knowledge and skill to fight for you all the way through the hearing and appeals process and can help you explore additional options such as filing a personal injury claim if someone other than your employer was responsible for your accident.

- Serious work injury from falling equipment, supplies or merchandise

Warning: In Georgia, workers’ compensation and Social Security Disability benefits may offset each other. Combined benefits from these sources cannot exceed 80 percent of your average income before your injury put you out of work. Only an experienced attorney can help you pursue real options, such as settling the worker’s compensation case with specific language and prorating benefits over your lifetime to eliminate or decrease this offset.
