Filing a Claim Put Award-Winning Representation on Your Side

Filing for Workers' Compensation

Cobb County Workers' Compensation Attorneys: (770) 285-5542

Filing for workers' compensation usually involves extensive paperwork. There are rules involved, and you will need to provide substantial medical documentation to verify your injuries. Many claims are usually denied due to simple errors or failing to include the necessary medical records. If your claim is denied and you are looking to appeal the judgment, it is always a good idea to make sure that you work with a Cobb County workers' compensation lawyer to maximize your chances of securing the benefits you need in a timely manner. We can take you through all the steps and help you put together a strong claim.

The process for filing workers' compensation includes:

  1. Filing and submitting the WC-14 form with the State Board of Workers' Compensation. You must send a copy of this form to your employer and his or her workers' compensation insurance carrier. You can get this form from your employer or the Board's site.
  2. After filing the claim, you should begin to receive benefits if your claim has been accepted.
  3. If you do not receive benefits or if your claim has been denied, contact an attorney to find out more about appealing your case. We can help you request a hearing with the State Board to reconsider your claim.
