Atlanta Workers' Compensation Lawyers

Legal Allies for the Working Class

As someone who works hard day in and day out, you should be well supported by your employer in case a workplace accident occurs. But you shouldn’t be surprised if the opposite is true. To try to avoid higher monthly insurance premiums, some dishonest employers will look for ways to contest their employees’ workers’ compensation claims. Or the insurance provider tries to deny or devalue a claim to save its own bottom line.

At The Roth Firm, LLC in Atlanta, we are passionate about protecting the rights of injured workers in our communities. Whether you work full-time, part-time, seasonally, or contractually, you deserve the best legal support – and that’s exactly what we deliver.

We offer our legal services to workers in all industries, such as:

  • Medical care
  • Law enforcement
  • Firefighting
  • Retail
  • Office work
  • Foodservice

When Workers’ Comp Applies

Workers’ compensation is designed to give necessary benefits to workers who are injured in an accident at work or while completing a job-related duty. This is also described as “in the scope of employment” in some contexts. Essentially, if you were doing something related to your work, even if you were on break in the back room, and were injured in an accident, you should be covered by workers’ compensation.

The definition of an accident is broader than you might realize, too. If you suffer an illness due to your occupation or a repetitive strain injury (RSI), then it should make you eligible for workers’ compensation all the same. For example, if you type at a keyboard all day and develop carpal tunnel syndrome, then you can file for workers’ comp.

Workers’ Compensation Benefits

In most cases, workers’ compensation can provide these benefits:

  • Medical treatments: You shouldn’t have to pay for any of your necessary medical care after a work-related accident. Everything from hospitalization fees to prescription costs should be provided through workers’ compensation benefits.
  • Disability pay: Temporary total disability (TTD) and permanent partial/total disability (PP/TD) benefits can become available if you can’t return to work for an extended period. Until you are able to work again, you can be paid two-thirds of your average weekly pre-injury wages.
  • Vocational rehabilitation: If you can never safely return to your job due to your new disabilities, then you could be provided training and education courses free of cost to you, so you can begin a new career.
  • Death benefits: When a workplace accident or illness results in a worker’s death, the surviving family members can receive death benefits, which might include temporary wage replacement benefits and funeral cost coverage.
