Georgia Workers’ Compensation Forms WC-102 and WC-1083 minute read

In our past articles in this blog series on Georgia Workers’ Compensation forms, we have discussed a general overview of the formsthe forms that you are likely to receive at the beginning of your case, the forms you could receive when your employer is denying benefits, the forms that have to do with medical treatment, and the forms that have to do with the ability to return to work.  In this article, we will discuss forms that have to do with attorney involvement in your workers’ compensation case.

All of the forms mentioned in the earlier articles in this blog series can certainly be filed when an attorney is involved in your case.  However, there are some State Board of Workers’ Compensation forms that will only be filed when an attorney is representing you or your employer.

Couple with denial letter from VANotice of Representation – Form WC-102(b)

A Form WC-102(b) is filed by an attorney who is hired to represent your employer and its workers’ compensation insurance company.  The form itself contains basic information including the attorney name, mailing address and phone number.  When this form is filed, you will know that you will now be dealing with an attorney instead of a representative of the insurance company.

If you receive this form and do not have an attorney yourself, then there is a good chance that your employer and its workers’ compensation insurance company is getting ready to do something in your case.  They may try to stop your weekly benefits check or try to get your doctor changed.

If your employer and its insurance company think that it makes since for them to pay an attorney by the hour to work on your case, you should, at the very least, contact an attorney who specializes in representing injured workers for a free consultation.

Attorney Withdrawal/Lien – Form WC-108(b)

A Form WC-108(b) is filed by an attorney when the attorney is fired or withdraws from a case.  The form indicates whether the attorney is filing a lien for the services that the attorney provided on the case.

If the attorney is filing a lien, this form and any attachments will indicate how much the attorney believes he or she is owed for work done on the case.  If the lien was filed by an attorney who represented you, the lien usually will be resolved when your case settles.

Motion/Objection to Motion – Form WC-102(d)

A Form WC-102(d) is a form that can be used to file motions or objections to motions.  A motion can be used to ask an administrative law judge at the Georgia State Board of Workers’ Compensation to order the employer and its insurance company to do something on your case.  This same form can also be used by your employer to file motions asking that a judge make you do something in your case.

If you receive this form in your case, it generally means that an attorney for the insurance company is asking the judge to do something in your case.  If you do not have an attorney, you should consult with one immediately because you will have a very limited time (generally only 15 days) to respond to the motion.

Question about Workers’ Compensation Forms

We have tried to cover the most common forms that you will encounter in this blog series.  However, there also are other less common State Board forms that have not been covered.

If you have a question about any form your receive or anything else about your workers’ compensation case, please complete the “Need Help” form or call us at the phone number on the right of this page for a free consultation.

What if I have other questions about workers compensation?

Georgia’s workers compensation system can be very confusing.  You have to worry about getting the treatment you need and paying your bills while also worrying about not missing any deadlines that could cause you to lose your right to receive workers compensation benefits.

If you have questions, I would recommend that you try to get answers.  To find out more about how to schedule a time to talk to me about your workers compensation questions, just read this short article.

I absolutely love this group of attorneys, when I was at my lowest they did everything they could to help me get justice for my injury. I believe if I were to have never picked my phone up and called the amazing group that helped me I definitely would not have received my idea of rights. If you have an issue and are just not sure please understand that they will help you, stay in contact, answer any question you have, and for sure get you the justice you deserve I thank them from the bottom of my heart and I will definitely refer them to anyone who has been hurt because they most definitely care about their work and clients.

If you must get a lawyer involved, you’d do well to work with Jason Perkins and his team at Perkins Studdard Law.They were thorough in gathering information and in sharing all the steps in the workers comp process specific to my case. Jason and the team were responsive to my bevy of questions and concerns.I appreciated the informative videos and consultations provided by Jason over video meetings and multiple phone calls.I hope I’m never injured on the job again. However, if I am and if my employer responds as my previous employer did, I’ll contact Perkins Studdard Law immediately to handle the case.

Everyone at Perkins Studdard was kind and professional. They were always extremely responsive and answered all questions that I had and followed up to make sure I had an understanding of what was going on along with emailing videos to explain every step of my case so I would know what to expect and be prepared. Jason is a very genuine person and I trusted him with my case. He answered so many questions for me even before I retained him as my WC lawyer. I highly recommend him and his associates at Perkins Studdard.
