Atlanta Workers’ Compensation Attorney – I Have a Workers Compensation Claim Currently But Can Not Get An Advance, What Can I Do?

Under Georgia law there are special conditions that must be met prior to the claimant being able to obtain an advance approved by the Georgia State Board of Workers Compensation.

If the claim is a medical only there may be an issue with obtaining an advance via the State Board of Workers compensation.

Even when you have a compensable claim or a claim in which you are receiving benefits i.e. weekly checks and medical care, you are not guaranteed to receive an advance on your claim.  You must still meet specific conditions which are controlled by statutory law.

If you are a claimant and are receiving income benefits and medical care due to a Georgia injury you are in the best position to receive an advance on your claim.

Contact a Georgia workers compensation attorney for more specifics on if you qualify currently under Georgia law.

  • Awesome Lawyer and very helpful!

  • Mr. Wilson is truly a very good person who cares about people. I understand he selected this career but I do know he makes many sacrifices to help he’s clients. I am very grateful to have had him as my attorney and if I ever have to use one again (hopefully not) it will be Mr. Wilson.

  • He worked with me. He told me everything. He called me. He gave me all the information.

  • He will be my family lawyer from now until the end because I can trust him.

  • He's just a great guy.

  • He always calls you right back and even if it's on the weekend - he's going to call you back.
