Even if you are on workers’ compensation benefits and are getting your medical care covered by your employer’s workers’ comp insurer, you should discuss your case with an attorney who specializes in Georgia workers compensation claims to ensure your case is not neglected. Adjusters assigned to workers’ comp cases frequently change, and timely approval of prescribed medical care can stop when an unfamiliar adjuster takes over an old claim. An advocate can help you, the injured worker, fight for timely approval of necessary medical treatment before your condition worsens.
