Do you have workers’ compensation questions related to the COVID-19 coronavirus?

What Are These Forms From The Georgia State Board of Workers’ Compensation?2 minute read

Many injured workers contact us with questions about documents they have received in the mail from the Georgia State Board of Workers’ Compensation.  They wonder what these documents mean and what it has to do with their case.  In order to help address some of these questions, we have prepared this series of articles which will provide a basic explanation of each of the most common forms and the ways in which each form might affect your workers’ compensation case.

Who Sent the Workers’ Compensation Form

The first important thing to understand is that the Workers’ Compensation form you have received was probably not sent by the Georgia State Board of Workers’ Compensation.  The Georgia Workers’ Compensation system is a form based workers’ compensation system.  This means that there are standard forms that are developed by the Georgia State Board of Workers’ Compensation that need to be filed at certain times in a workers’ compensation case.   However, these form are usually actually prepared and filed by your employer, their workers’ compensation insurance company, or their attorney.

What Types of Forms Might I Receive

There are over 50 different standard workers’ compensation forms; however, there are only 15 forms that you are most likely to run into in your workers’ compensation case.  These forms, which are listed below, include forms which tell you what benefits you will receive, what doctors you can treat with, and what light duty work is available.  This blog series will discuss those 15 forms and what they mean to you.  In our next blog post in this series, we will discuss several forms that you may encounter at the beginning of your workers’ compensation case.

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.
