Jason Perkins Speaks at Workers’ Compensation Seminar1 minute read

Jason Perkins was featured as a speaker at the 2012 continuing legal education seminar “Workers’ Compensation for the General Practitioner”. The seminar is put on by the Institute of Continuing Legal Education in Georgia. Jason spoke on the issue of “Contacting the Medical Provider in a Workers’ Compensation Matter”.  Jason addressed the issue from the perspective of an attorney who specializes in representing injured workers in workers’ compensation claims. Michael Bagley of the law firm Drew, Eckl, & Farnham, LLP, spoke on the same issue from the perspective of an attorney representing employers and insurers.

This seminar topic held particular interest because of the recent Georgia Court of Appeals decision of McRae v. Arby’s Restaurant Group, Inc., 721 S.E.2d 602 (Ga. App. 2011), which concluded that attorneys representing employers and insurers could not force injured worker to allow their doctor to meet with the employers’ attorneys. You can read more about the McRae case and how it protects the privacy of injured workers in this previous blog post.

All attorneys in Perkins Studdard’s Workers’ Compensation Division have been featured as speakers at continuing legal education seminars focusing on Georgia Workers’ Compensation claims. In addition to speaking at this most recent seminar, Jason Perkins has spoken at several other workers’ compensation seminars on topics such as catastrophic designation, Maloney job search requirements, and recent appellate court decisions.

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.
