Georgia Workers' Compensation Case Successfully Mediated By Montlick & Associates, Attorneys


August 20, 2010

A client of Montlick & Associates, Attorneys at Law was severely injured at work while unclogging a water line with a sewer machine. Our client bent over to pick up the machine to put it back in the truck and felt a distinct “pop” in his back. Doctors determined that the worker had L4-5 disc bulging at two levels, requiring surgery. Following the surgery, physical therapy was required, but the insurance company withheld approval for the therapy as well as doctor-prescribed pain medication. Additionally, the insurance company withheld approval for a post-operative MRI that would determine whether or not our client’s surgery was successful, or if a second surgery would be required.

Our team of Georgia injury attorneys worked quickly and diligently to put a plan of action in place that would insure that our client received the medical attention needed to achieve maximum recovery. This included the MRI, physical therapy and pain medication originally contested by the insurance company. Through hard work and dedication on our client's behalf, Montlick and Associates, Attorneys settled our client’s claim for over $120,000.

It is important to note that Georgia’s Workers Compensation Law compensates injured workers for lost wages and medical treatment only. The system does not provide any compensation for pain and suffering. Awards are based on a complex, regulated system, including the injured workers’ “permanent disability rating”. The lawyers at Montlick & Associates have extensive experience with Workers’ Compensation Law and fight hard to insure that clients receive the maximum compensation allowed by law.
