Proving Fault in Workplace Eye Injury Claims

If your workplace eye injury claim is denied, you carry the burden of proof. This means you must present evidence which clearly demonstrates the following:

  • Employment – That you were an employee of the poultry plant
  • Causation – That the injury arose out of and in the course of your employment- meaning during and as a result of your employment
  • Damages – That you suffered an injury that led to disability or the need for medical treatment

We understand this can seem intimidating, so our dedicated Atlanta workplace eye injury lawyers can help prove these points with the following evidence:

  • Medical records
  • Video footage
  • Witness testimony
  • Maintenance records
  • Other important documents

We work hard to build a strong claim and give you the best chance of securing full compensation for your losses. 

What Damages Can You Recover After a Workplace Eye Injury?

If you suffered an eye injury while working, you may collect workers’ compensation. Depending on your unique circumstances and other details of your claim, you may recover the following:

  • Past, present, and future medical bills
  • Surgery costs
  • Therapy and other treatments
  • Prescribed medications
  • Lost wages and benefits from missed work
  • Loss of sight

Our Hasner Law Atlanta workplace eye injury lawyers aggressively advocate for maximum compensation for your damages, even if your employer’s insurance provider tries to deny your claim or say your eye injury resulted from a pre-existing condition. We understand these tactics and can negotiate with adjusters on your behalf to give you the best chance of achieving a fair settlement. Furthermore, we understand how to calculate your claim’s worth accurately and consider every detail when determining your benefits. 

How Can an Atlanta Lawyer Help With Your Workplace Eye Injury Claim?

After sustaining an eye injury at work, you deserve to take time to recover instead of worrying about the legal process. Fortunately, you do not have to go through it alone. Our caring Atlanta workplace eye injury attorneys at Hasner Law are here to manage all elements of your claim, including the following, to help you avoid errors or misspeaking and alleviate your stress:

  • Conducting a thorough investigation of your claim
  • Gathering and analyzing evidence
  • Using our legal knowledge to answer your questions
  • Utilizing valuable resources to strengthen your claim
  • Filing your claim properly
  • Negotiating and speaking on your behalf 
  • Taking your claim to court if necessary

Additionally, when filing a workers’ compensation claim, Georgia law only gives you one year from the date of your injury to do so. While this may seem like plenty of time, your recovery and other delays can make it challenging to meet this deadline on your own. Our skilled Atlanta workplace eye injury lawyers understand this time limit and work hard to file your claim efficiently, so you can receive your benefits as soon as possible.
