Union County Worker's Compensation & Personal Injury Lawyer
Personal Injury and Workers' Comp Cases in Union County
Looking for an attorney for a workers' comp case in Union County, GA? In our state, worker's compensation is an insurance program that provides for specific benefits if you have suffered a workplace injury. The program is intended to compensate for lost wages, medical needs and rehabilitation until you can come back to work. It also makes compensation available if a wrongful death or other fatality occurs due to work related injuries. Unfortunately, the system does not always function as planned and worker's claims are frequently denied. Worker's compensation procedures can become especially frustrating and complex when a worker receives a catastrophic injury and is permanently disabled. It is vital, therefore, to seek representation from an accomplished Union County workers' comp attorney when you have been injured on the job.
Many times, these cases end up in litigation against an employer and/or their insurance carrier. While this may at times be necessary, at Douglas F. Kaleita, P.C. we frequently use an alternative strategy to obtain the compensation you need and have earned. Court room confrontations certainly have their place but they are sometimes pursued due to an attorney's desire, not because it serves a client's best interests. We focus on getting your case settled outside of court and have become highly successful at this endeavor. We have recovered millions of dollars for our clients, in part as a result of the different manner in which we work to resolves cases. Although we are always prepared to litigate in a court of law, when we can settle your case without the need for trial we strive to do so.
