We Confront The Uncertainty You Face After An Injury
Suffering a serious injury at work can riddle you with uncertainty. You may feel uneasy about the process to pursue workers’ compensation, getting the care you need, paying your daily bills while you are unable to work, whether you can return to your job and more.
At Duffee Law Firm, we advocate for workers across Georgia. Having a lawyer on your side from the beginning can help to secure the full compensation you are entitled to and ensure your rights are respected.
The Realities Of Filing A Claim
Many assume that after suffering an injury at work, the workers’ compensation system will take care of them. Others assume that filing a claim to recover the compensation they need and deserve after an accident at work may cause them to lose their job.
In reality, your employer and their workers’ compensation insurer are generally reluctant to accept your claim outright. Insurance companies ultimately strive to maintain a profit and to do this, they may deny or minimize injured workers’ legitimate claims for benefits. However, this does not negate the fact that after an injury, you deserve the opportunity to receive such benefits without fear of losing your job.
The Need For An Experienced Attorney
Founding attorney Robert Duffee worked many jobs from the age of 13 before starting his legal career. He worked as a warehouse foreman before becoming an attorney. He experienced firsthand the dangers that are regularly encountered at work. He now has over 20 years of experience confronting the legal challenges that injured employees face, including:
- Ensuring you are fully compensated after your workplace injury
- Fighting to get your employer and their insurer to respect your rights
- Advising when you feel pressure to return to work or certain job duties too soon
The process to file for and receive workers’ comp benefits can be long and frustrating. We work with you one-on-one to pursue the benefits you deserve and protect your rights from the start.
