The term "workers compensation" refers to a system of laws outlining specific benefits to which injured employees are entitled, and the procedures for obtaining such benefits. Every state has its own workers' compensation laws, which are contained in statutes, and vary somewhat from state to state. In addition, there are special, federal workers' compensation laws for employees of the federal government and other, specific types of industries.

Thanks for all the advice on my case. It helped me to understand more about workers compensation. I am still on worker's comp and still trying to settle with the lawsuit, but I am patient. Thank you for helping me through a very difficult time in my life. Your staff was always willing to help answer any questions. Thanks again. Angela D. - Oxford, Georgia

The area of Personal Injury Law dealing with work-related injuries is known as Workers Compensation. This area of law is a no-fault system of social legislation. Fault on the part of the employer and/or employee is largely irrelevant, although cases have arisen over such issues as horseplay, intoxication and willful disobedience to the instructions of the employer. Coverage is limited to those having the status of an employee, as opposed to an independent contractor.


 

Workers Compensation Lawyer Con't

 
Any injury occurring while engaged in the course and scope of duties imposed upon the employee is considered a work-related injury. Even if a worker is injured while away from the employer's work site, if he becomes injured while engaged in work duties, the injury or occupational disease may be covered by Workers Compensation Law, Personal Injury Law or both.

I would recommend my family and friends to Mr. Scott Slappey. I have never had anyone to treat me with so much concern, keep me abreast on everything and answer all my questions. I saw the Christian in him. If I ever need a lawyer he would be the first person I would call. I thank God for leading me to Mr. Slappey. I had called several lawyers in Columbus and they told me no. Barbara M. - Columbus, Georgia

Under the law in most states, every business must have some form of workers' compensation insurance to cover injured employees. Filing a workers' compensation claim is similar to filing an insurance claim; it isn't a lawsuit against an employer, but rather a request for benefits. If you have been injured at work, attorneys experienced in workers' compensation law can explain the complexities of workers' compensation and help you secure the maximum benefits to which you are entitled.

In most work-related injuries, an injured employee's recovery is limited to Workers Compensation benefits. This means the employee cannot sue the employer. However, careful analysis of the cause of injury is important because there may be other avenues of responsibility and recovery.

I never even dreamed I would have the need to call on a lawyer. But, thank goodness someone referred me to Scott Slappey. I can honestly say Scott put 110% into my case. He never gave up and never let me give up. In the end we were very successful, and I appreciate all Scott and his office staff did to help my case. Rebecca D. - Claxton, Georgia
