Can I file a workers’ comp claim myself?
Yes, technically, you can file a claim yourself. However, to be taken seriously by insurance companies, you’re going to want to be represented by a licensed attorney. A well-trained Georgia workers’ compensation attorney will go the extra mile to make sure you get the most compensation possible. Injured parties who settle their claims directly with insurance companies typically recover less than one-third the amount of those represented by a workers’ compensation attorney.
How much will it cost for me to be represented?
At Workers’ Compensation from the Law Offices of Darwin F. Johnson, we only recover a fee if and only if we win or settle your case. We don’t ask for a penny up front.
How much money will I receive as a result of a claim?
One of the most common questions we receive, unfortunately, has no true answer. The severity of the injury, the length of time missed from work, an individual’s past medical history and many other factors can contribute the amount of money one receives from a successful claim.
How long will it take to receive a settlement?
Again, similar to the common question of how much will I receive, the timeline for a case to be resolved also varies on many different factors. However, interested parties can rest assured that the attorneys at Workers’ Compensation from the Law Office of Darwin Johnson will fight to represent you to make sure you receive the compensation you deserve quickly and efficiently.
