How We Work for You

While we always look for creative solutions, we know that there is no substitute for a nose-to-the-grindstone approach. With more than 25 years of experience representing injured workers, our firm follows a process that works:

  • Our attorney will conduct a detailed initial interview with you to determine all the issues surrounding your claim. This consultation is absolutely free, with no obligation to you.
  • We will request your medical records from all the doctors and/or hospitals that provided treatment for your injury.
  • If you are having trouble seeing a doctor or receiving treatment, we will immediately take the necessary steps to get your treatment authorized by the insurance company.
  • If you are already receiving weekly income benefits, we will request wage records from your employer to make sure you are receiving the maximum benefit available to you. (Unfortunately, many people are underpaid and don’t realize it.)
  • If we determine that you are entitled to the initial payment or additional income benefits, we will immediately request a hearing before the State Board of Workers’ Compensation.
  • If your initial claim for benefits has been denied, we will work quickly to identify what needs to be done to fight the denial.

Do not wait to get the legal advice you need. Contact Gregory Smith Law, LLC, today to learn how we can help you through this stressful process.

How Does a Workers’ Comp Lawyer Get Paid in GA?

In Georgia, workers’ compensation lawyers are paid a contingency fee. This fee is only paid if the lawyer wins your case, and it is paid as a set percentage of your recovery. Georgia law limits attorney fees in workers’ compensation cases to 25 percent of the weekly income benefit amount or settlement we recover on your behalf.

What does this mean for you? It means that when choosing a lawyer, fees should not be your focus. Instead, you should be looking for experience. You need an attorney who knows the workers’ compensation system and has the skills to fight for the maximum payment possible.
