Seriously injured at work or in an accident in Georgia?
Learn what to do next and what to expect when seeking compensation.
Accidents happen all the time, usually when you least expect them. The thing about “accidents” is that they often could have been avoided were it not for the negligence of another person or company. In the case of a serious accident, those responsible can be held financially liable for an accident victim’s injuries and property damage.
In Macon, Albany, Warner Robins and throughout the state of Georgia, accident victims can seek compensation from at-fault individuals via a personal injury accident. Likewise, injured workers can obtain workers’ compensation and Social Security disability benefits regardless of who’s fault the incident was.
If you or a loved one were recently injured, it may be necessary to file a personal injury lawsuit or workers’ compensation claim.
Lawsuits are often time consuming, expensive and complicated. In addition to focusing on your physical and emotional recovery, you may now be facing the financial impact of a serious injury — from medical bills piling up to not being able to work.
The good news is that financial recovery is possible — and you don’t have to do it alone. Here at the law firm of Westmoreland, Patterson, Moseley & Hinson, our Macon injury lawyers are here to help. In addition to offering a free consultation to discuss your case, we’ve created this comprehensive accident guide to inform you about your rights and responsibilities under Georgia injury law.
