Seeking Benefits For Work-Related Illness Or Injury

People are often surprised to learn that work-related injuries don't have to be the result of an accident in order to qualify for workers' compensation benefits in Georgia. In many cases, diagnosed conditions for repetitive stress injuries that are directly related to your job will also qualify for paid medical treatment and lost income benefits. The same applies to any illness that you may have contracted through your job.

For skilled help seeking the benefits you need, turn to me, Brunswick attorney Steven L. Morgan. Since 1994, I have been helping people like you throughout Georgia. Let me provide the legal counsel and assistance you require today.
