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

What If I Require Ongoing Medical Treatment?

1024px-Doctor_takes_blood_pressureIn a perfect world, you will get the medical treatment you need and we will know your:

  • Permanent impairment
  • Total medical expenses
  • Impact on your job
  • Impact of your activities

Sometimes, though a case has to be evaluated before those things can be determined with certainty. For example, you may require ongoing treatment for the rest of your life. Or maybe your doctors expect you to need surgery but want to wait several years before performing it.

We can still value your case, but it requires us to get expert help. We may hire a life care planner, a professional whose job it is to calculate all the expenses associated with your future care. We may have to get your doctor to give us her opinions about the ongoing treatment you will need and its cost. Vocational experts may be necessary to determine what jobs you may or may not be able to do. We may have to hire an economist to research what economic impact your limitations may have on your ability to earn income. These all involve opinions and projections about what the future holds, but attorneys know how to find experts competent to provide this information so future losses may be factored into valuing your 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.
