Have you or a loved one been hurt on the job?
Contact us today to schedule a free consultation and discuss your case with experienced Georgia workers’ compensation attorney Ben Gerber.
Fill out a contact form or give us a call and we’ll be in touch with you shortly to get more details about your case. The Georgia statute of limitations requires injured workers to file a workers’ compensation claim within 1 year from date of injury (not 2 years like most other personal injury claims). After this period, your chance to receive financial reimbursement may expire. Even waiting a month to file a claim could seriously impact your benefits.
