Mr. Gerber was there for me
"I genuinely do not know what I would have done about my case if it hadn't been for Ben Gerber. Mr. Gerber was there for me before I ever retained him as counsel. He answered every question and concern for me along the way. Once I officially retained him, he hit the ground running making sure my appointments were being made and that my compensation was being delivered and allocated correctly. Bottom line: if you are hurt at work and being treated poorly by workers' comp, call Ben Gerber. Let him listen to your issues and he will guide you in the right direction. I cannot express enough how much he helped me. It's so refreshing to have someone answer the phone or promptly call back when an issue arises. Long story short, if you need a legal team that will stand by and stand up for you, please contact Gerber & Holder. You will not be disappointed."

Frequently Asked
Hurt at work? Know your rights. Insights from Atlanta work accident attorney Ben Gerber

state-by-state breakdown of work-related PTSD

In most states, PTSD benefits fall under "mental/mental," "mental-only" or "psychological" injuries. While a majority of states allow some form of compensation for mental injuries arising out of a physical injury at work (mental/physical injuries), far fewer states allow workers' compensation for mental harm, suffering, damage, impairment, or dysfunction resulting from some action or failure to act by some individual.

Don't wait to contact an Atlanta hurt at work attorney.

The clock is ticking on your case. A work injury claim can take a surprisingly long time, and the longer you wait, the longer it may take to receive the benefits owed to you. Also, the Georgia statute of limitations restricts the amount of time injured workers have to file a claim to within one year of the accident date—not two years as in other personal injury claims.
