Augusta Workers' Compensation Lawyers

Serving Augusta for 40 Years and Counting

You’ve been hurt on the job. Medical bills are stacking up, and you have a family relying on you. 

Injuries that occur while a person is at work are often treated differently than other injuries. This is because of workers’ compensation: a system that allows injured individuals to collect benefits when an injury happens while performing your job duties. We’ve been serving injured workers and getting them the money they deserve for 40 years. Let us help you next.

Get the Money You Deserve

While workers’ compensation benefits can be critical for your recovery, you may be entitled to even more money in your pocket after a workplace injury. If your accident was the result of a third party such as, for example, another employee or a defective machine part, you could have an additional personal injury claim on top of your workers’ comp claim. That could mean a substantial sum of money. Find out your legal options when you speak with a Montlick attorney for your free consultation. Our attorneys thoroughly explore every avenue possible to maximize your financial compensation.

Caring, professional and thorough. They go above and beyond to make sure your well being is taken care of first. Both Douglas and Gia are a team that cannot be matched by any other firm. They call you within the first week to let you know they take their job very serious without any form of arrogance. Thank you for representing me and my child! I'm a client for life!

Cate Powell and her team did excellent job at getting me the help I needed. They referred me to a great medical facility for treatment. Any questions I had was met with a quick response and I was always up to date on what was happening. They made the process as easy as possible for me. I would highly recommend using Cate Powell with montlick and associates.

Get the Most Money for Your Claim

Under Georgia Law, if you sustain an injury on the job because of the negligence of a third party that is not your employer, you could be entitled to pursue a personal injury claim against that party in addition to your workers’ comp claim. Ultimately, that could mean more money to compensate you for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Punitive damages
  • and more
Workers' Comp Lawyers for Injured Augusta Workers

Georgia Worker's Comp Requirements

There are a few steps that must be taken in order to have a valid workers’ comp claim. When you call Montlick, we can walk you through it.

Title 34 requires an employee who was injured on the job to notify their employer within 30 days of the job-related injury. The same time frame applies to the injury or death of a loved one to be eligible for benefits. Notice should be given to the worker’s:

  • Direct supervisor
  • Company owner
  • Human resources department
  • Other parties as designated by the business

Your employer might specify the manner in which they want to receive notice of the injury as well. There are some exceptions to this rule. You must also file a notice of workers’ compensation with the State Board of Workers’ Compensation and send a copy to your employer and its workers’ compensation carrier.

You have the right under Title 34 to file a claim with the Georgia Workers’ Compensation Board. They will review your case and may refer it to a workers’ compensation judge.

If you request a hearing, it can generally be scheduled with the State Board of Workers’ Compensation. The judge will listen to both sides of the case before making a ruling. The judge will decide, based on the evidence, whether you are entitled to receive compensation for your injury, using criteria that include:

  • Whether the injury occurred in the course of employment
  • The seriousness of the injury
  • Whether the injury is permanent
  • If you can return to work
  • The number of weeks you are entitled to benefits

Workers’ compensation laws are complex. It is important to get the advice of experienced workers’ comp attorneys to make sure you’re getting the money you deserve.
