Has your Georgia workers compensation claim been denied? Call Spillers Law Firm today.
Getting hurt at work can be devastating. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), there were nearly 893,000 workplace injuries in 2016 that resulted in employees needing to take time away from work due to the severity of the illness or injury. That figure has held relatively steady over the last few years, and the BLS does not expect the number to change radically within the next year or two. As such, that means almost 893,000 workers may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. Yet thousands of workers have their claims denied for a wide variety of reasons, and some of those workers do not understand their rights when it comes to appealing the denial.
