If your employer will not provide you medical care for your workers’ compensation claim, you will likely have to file for a hearing with the State Board of Workers’ Compensation. The State Board provides help for filing the hearing, however it is recommended that you speak with a workers’ compensation attorney, as the Board will not provide legal advice.
Once you file a hearing you are in litigation, so the employer/insurer will hire an attorney quickly to represent them. Georgia workers’ compensation claims are administratively based, however knowledge of the Georgia Workers’ Compensation Act, Georgia Civil Practice Act, Georgia Evidence Code will help tremendously, that is why it is recommended to reach out to a Georgia workers’ compensation attorney.
