WHAT INJURIES ARE USUALLY DENIED?

 Injuries that do not happen when you are “ on the clock” or in your working area present a special problem. The insurance company will try to avoid paying you your benefits. But you may be entitled to compensation and we can help you win. FILE A CLAIM

THESE ARE SOME OF THE CLAIMS THAT THE INSURANCE COMPANY MAY TRY TO DENY:

  1. Coming to or leaving from your work area.

  2. Injured during lunch or break time.

  3. Injury that occurs while engaged in “horseplay”.

  4. Injuries while you are at home.

  5. Injuries that involved intoxication.

  6. Injuries to parts of your body that preexisted your employment or were not disclosed on an employment application.

  7. Even legitimate Workers’ Compensation Cases are often denied. Employers and or their insurance company look for any loop-hold to wiggle out of paying you benefits to which you are entitled. Workers’ Compensation is one of the most adversarial and contested areas of Georgia law.

  8. Employers use “surveillance” hire private investigators to follow you around hoping to video you doing some activity that contradicts your claim of injury. Your co-employees and managers will be pressured to not support your claim and may even lie to protect their jobs. “Company Doctors” who make a good living treating company employees are paid and quickly return you to work to save the insurance company money. Sometime releasing workers before they are medially ready to work.

  9. Assume that your employer or insurance company will challenge your claim, either immediately or in the future. Do not assume that your employer or insurance adjuster is serving your best interests. You are not paying them the insurance company is an that is where their loyalty rests.
