Brunswick Workers’ Compensation Lawyer

Helping Injured Workers File Claims & Receive Needed Benefits

Georgia private employers reported more than 78,000 workplace injuries and illnesses in 2019. While that number places the state below the national average, there is no doubt that missing work because of injuries on the job impacts many Georgians. 

Workers’ compensation covers the costs of medical care and a portion of the worker’s salary for work they miss. Unfortunately, some employers try to deny claims or underpay them. 

At Mayfield Law, LLC, we help our Brunswick neighbors file for workers’ compensation and fight against any denial. We also look beyond the employer to evaluate whether a third party might also have responsibility for the incident. 

A great firm that goes above and beyond for the client. Alex is a dedicated and experienced lawyer who knows how to maximize his client's recovery.

Georgia Workers’ Compensation Laws 

Why Do You Need a Workers' Compensation Attorney in Brunswick?

Like other types of insurance, the company’s workers’ compensation insurance premiums typically rise because of claims. 

Employers sometimes deny valid claims or attempt to minimize the injury to keep their premium costs down. They might downplay the seriousness of the injury or illness or assert the incident was not related to work. You may be pushed to go back to work before you medically should. 

At Mayfield Law, LLC, we help our clients submit strong claims and respond aggressively to any questions or pushback.

Our experienced attorney can help clients navigate the workers’ compensation process:

  • Help build a strong claim to be submitted
  • Respond to claim denials
  • Pursue a lawsuit against a third party that played a role in the injury (equipment manufacturer, custodial services company, etc.)
  • An accident should be reported to the employer within 30 days of the date it occurred. A workers’ compensation claim must be filed within one year of the accident or incident.

Understanding Brunswick's No-Fault Workers' Comp System

Workers’ compensation in Brunswick is a no-fault system, meaning you have the right to make a claim for benefits even if you contributed to what caused the injury. In return, the employer is shielded from lawsuits related to the injury. Regardless of any blame on your part, your employer cannot block you from receiving benefits.

Legal Action Against Negligent Third Parties

Employers are insulated from lawsuits, but the same is not true for third parties. Many companies use outside contractors, service providers, and equipment manufactured by others. If you slip and fall because a cleaning company left an area wet without proper signage, you might have a case to sue them. If a piece of equipment you use fails due to a manufacturer flaw, you might have grounds to sue the manufacturer.
