An employee was working part-time for a large automotive parts store. The employee fell off a ladder injuring his teeth, neck, ribs, and spine.

While the insurance company fought the surgery, the Ramos Law Firm was able to force the insurance company into paying for the surgery and associated therapies.

This part-time employee settled his case for $185,000 plus unlimited medical care for the remainder of his claim.

The most common mistake people make in navigating workers’ compensation.
Most injured workers are very overwhelmed in the wake of a serious accident. They don’t know where to begin. When hurt, people need immediate medical attention, and typically contact their health insurance agency. The insurance agent will likely encourage the worker to not seek legal help. Following this advice is the single most common and potentially devastating mistake an injured worker can make.
Insurance companies benefit when injured workers do not seek legal counsel. The injured worker does not. Georgia workers’ compensation laws are highly complex. The insurance companies know the laws, and will strive to make people feel comfortable that the employee is in good hands. But the fact is, there are many components to the legal system that can turn the tide on your compensation outcome.
