Atlanta Workers’ Compensation Attorney – How do I settle my Georgia workers compensation claim?

This is a tricky question. The reality is the employer/insurer do not have to settle your claim. Typically the reasons insurance companies want to settle workers compensation claims are you are getting weekly checks or need a surgery that is going to cost them a lot of money and may lead to further unpredictable medical expenses . They do not like to keep paying people, so at that point, they may see if you want to settle. Another reason they like to try to settle your case would be if you had a surgical recommendation. Typically any reason to save them money on the expectation of where your claim is going. In other words they are interested in settling with people if they think by doing so they will save themselves money down the line.  Realize even though this is personal to you, it is all business for them.

  • 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.
