What our clients are saying

I was hurt on my job in 2018. When I contacted Hasner Law Firm I was assigned Jessica King as my attorney. She is very caring and knowledgeable. Her first priority was getting me to a doctor and getting me the help I needed. Mrs. King was always in contact with me and kept me informed on the status of my case. I was treated like a person not just another case on her desk. In the end I got the medical treatment I very much needed and a good settlement. Which was more than me and my family expected. I highly recommend Hasner Law Firm and the amazing staff that they have.

William P.

Let me preface this by saying, I am not an easy person to work with. That statement is especially true when I am hurting and my family is suffering. The Hasner Law Group put my family and I first. Going through the process for over a year, they were always there to ensure that I had what I needed to take care of my wife and daughter. Whenever I had questions, they answered them in a timely manner. When I had concerns or was uneasy about the process, they were able to ease my mind. Communication is key to any relationship and they made sure I never felt alone. Thank you so much for all your hard work and dedication to my case. God bless you all.

Rees C.

This firm has given me the ability to focus on my healing and recovery. Being referred by another attorney based on his personal experience with Hasner Law firm gave me an immediate sense of their excellent reputation and I must agree. The attorneys and paralegals, and staff are compassionate professionals focused on the care and recovery of their clients.

I feel as if Stephen, Judy, and Melissa are family now. I know and trust they have me and my best interest included first in every step of the process. I couldn’t be in better hands.

The workers’ compensation system is set up to help injured workers get back on their feet after an accident. It’s there to help relieve some of the financial stress your injury may cause. However, just because you’re entitled to workers’ compensation benefits doesn’t mean that getting money will be easy.

The system is designed to benefit employers and insurance companies, not injured workers like you. When you file a claim, you have to follow rigid procedures and meet strict deadlines. Your employers’ insurance carrier will put obstacles between you and the money you deserve. Simple mistakes could cost you valuable compensation.

Hiring an attorney can make a massive difference in your quest for benefits. At Hasner Law, our attorneys have more than 80 years of combined experience handling complex workers’ compensation claims. We know Georgia workers’ compensation law inside and out. We know what steps need to be taken to not only secure benefits on your behalf, but to get you the maximum benefits that can be paid under the law.

When you turn to us for help after you get hurt at work, all of this can benefit you. We will guide you through the process and advocate on your behalf. We’ll carefully investigate your accident and work with experts to make sure we know what your case is worth.

Our goal is to help you secure the money you need as you recover from your workplace injury or illness. We’ll work tirelessly to get you the workers’ compensation benefits you need and deserve. Give us a call today to set up a free consultation and learn more.

Georgia’s No-Fault Workers’ Compensation System

If your employer has three or more employees, they’re legally required to have a workers’ compensation insurance policy. When an employee gets hurt at work or while performing a work-related task, this insurance program can cover the costs of medical bills, lost wages, and disability – regardless of fault.

That’s right – you can qualify to receive workers’ compensation benefits even if you are entirely or partly responsible for the accident that caused you to get hurt. Georgia’s no-fault system provides that any injured worker can seek and recover benefits.

Can You Sue Your Employer If They Have Workers’ Compensation Insurance?

The workers’ compensation system is set up to provide swift financial support for injured employees. It’s also designed to protect employers from lawsuits. If your employer has workers’ comp insurance, you’ll waive your right to sue them for injury-related damages. You’ll be required to go through the workers’ compensation system, instead.

There are limited exceptions to this rule. You may have a legitimate case against your employer if they failed to purchase a workers’ comp insurance policy or weren’t required to have it. Generally speaking, though, lawsuits against your employer will be off-limits.

Do I qualify for Workers Compensation Benefits

In the state of Georgia, workers’ compensation can be paid to any employees who suffer an injury at work. This applies to both full and part-time workers, but not independent contractors.

However, you don’t have to get hurt on your employer’s premises to qualify. You can also successfully secure workers’ comp benefits if you get hurt while performing a job-related task or responsibility.

For example, let’s say you’re driving a work van to transport materials to a job site in Atlanta when you get into a traffic accident. You’d qualify for workers’ comp since you were completing a task within the scope of your employment.

  • Medical Bills

  • Temporary Total Disability

  • Temporary Partial Disability

  • Permanent Total Disability

  • Permanent Partial Disability

  • Death Benefits

The workers’ compensation system helps you get money faster than if you filed a lawsuit against your employer. However, the benefits are limited. You can’t get money for things like emotional distress or pain and suffering. Those damages would only be available if you also have a legitimate case against a negligent third party.

How Do I File a Claim for Workers’ Compensation Benefits in Georgia?

When it comes to filing a request for workers’ compensation, Georgia has some pretty strict procedures in place. Here’s what you need to know about filing a claim to receive benefits after you get hurt at work.

Once you’ve submitted your claim, your employer’s insurance company will review your request for benefits. If your request is approved, you’ll begin to receive the benefits for which you’re eligible. If your claim is denied, you have the right to appeal that decision and fight to get the money you believe you deserve.
