What Can Be Done If Things Are Not Working Out?

If you are dissatisfied with how your case is being handled by either the company or their insurance company, then you (or your lawyer) must file a “claim” with the State Board of Workers’ Compensation asking a Judge to straighten out the problem. Filing a claim may be the most important decision you make. You should always consult a lawyer before taking this step.

Most importantly, a “claim” must be filed within certain time limits, known as the “statute of limitations”. In Georgia, a claim for some benefit under the Workers’ Compensation Act must usually be filed within one year from the date of the work-related injury. The one-year limit is subject to several exceptions and your lawyer can advise you about the exceptions.
