My Benefits Were Cut Off. What Do I Do?
Workers’ compensation payments are meant to provide financial support while you focus on healing. When you lose those benefits, it can be tremendously stressful. At Tillman & Associates, Attorneys At Law, we have worked with clients throughout Georgia since 1991. As a former insurance defense attorney, Burt L. Tillman knows how the legal system works. Utilize this knowledge and get what you are rightfully entitled to.
Finding A Solution That Works For You
Many people walk through our doors and say their workers’ compensation benefits were cut off. Typically, this happens because a doctor determines a client is fully recovered and can get back to work. In many cases, this is a sigh of relief. In other cases, it can be a disaster. Some of our clients fear it is far too soon and they are not healthy enough to go back to business as usual. Our firm can help you find a medical professional who can complete an independent exam. Getting a second opinion is the smartest move you can make, and we are here to help you move forward with this process.
In getting a second opinion, our goal is to show you are not 100% healed and, as a result, still need some assistance. In some situations, a doctor may suggest you get back to work but on a modified schedule or in a different type of setting. We work with your employer in order to provide you with realistic accommodations you will need. Depending on the results of your independent exam, we may decide it makes sense for you to perform light-duty work. Again, this all depends on the specifics of your circumstances. We can talk through the options with you and determine what makes the most sense.
