What benefits am I entitled to if my employer reduces my work hours and pay because of my workers’ compensation injury?

When an employer reduces the injured employee’s hours or pay because of her workers’ compensation accident, the employer may be required to pay a portion of the difference between the average weekly wage before the accident and the average weekly wage after the accident.  The difference in these wages would be taken at a 2/3 rate of pay.  This is called temporary partial disability.  These benefits are calculated on a weekly basis. In many situations, the employer will not voluntarily commence these benefits to the injured worker.  It is the injured worker’s responsibility to raise this issue with his or her employer. The attorneys at the Ramos Law Firm understand this concept and have prosecuted many of these cases resulting in causal results for its clients.  If you’ve been injured on the job and you are now making less money because of your work injury, please contact the attorneys at the Ramos Law...

NCR Columbus Plant Opens on October 29, 2009

On October 29, the NCR Corporation opened its 350,000 sq. ft. ATM manufacturing facility in Columbus, Georgia.  Approximately 870 jobs will be created at the new Columbus facility over the next three years.  It has been reported that 120 employees have already been hired and trained through Georgia’s Quick Start program.  Not unlike other manufacturing facilities, these workers have sustained injuries arising out of, and in the course of, their employment. A common assembly line injury is carpal tunnel syndrome.  Generally, any condition that exerts pressure on the median nerve at the wrist can cause carpal tunnel syndrome.  Tendon inflammation resulting from repetitive work, such as uninterrupted arm and hand movements, can also cause carpal tunnel symptoms. Carpal tunnel syndrome from repetitive maneuvers has been referred to as one of the repetitive stress injuries. At the Ramos Law Firm, our lawyers have handled hundreds of workers’ compensation injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome and other repetitive stress cases.
