Atlanta White Collar Work Injury Lawyers

Understanding Your Right to Compensation

While many people think of work injuries in the context of construction workers, industrial workers, warehouse employees, commercial truck drivers, and employees in similar fields, office workers can also be injured on the job. These are known as white collar work injuries, and victims are entitled to receive workers’ compensation benefits, the same as any other type of injured worker.

The Atlanta white collar work injury lawyers at Whiteman, Hamilton & Conklin, LLC can help you navigate the workers’ compensation process if you were injured in the office or while carrying out duties covered by the scope of your employment. With more than eight decades of combined legal experience, including experience working on the other side of the courtroom, our team understands the lengths insurance companies will go to in order to avoid paying out rightful claims. We are here to help you secure the fair recovery you deserve.

Call our firm at (404) 800-4661 or fill out and submit a contact form today. We offer free initial consultations and there are never any fees for you until we secure compensation on your behalf.

Which White Collar Work Injuries Are Covered by Workers’ Compensation?

In Georgia, workers’ compensation covers a variety of white collar work injuries, as long as the injuries occur in the workplace or as a result of employees conducting work-related activities. There are some exceptions, such as when an employee is under the influence of drugs/alcohol and is injured. If you have questions about your specific situation, we encourage you to contact our Atlanta white collar work injury attorneys for a free consultation.

White collar work injuries that may be covered by workers’ compensation include but are not limited to:

  • Repetitive motion injuries
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Tendinitis
  • Overexertion
  • Slip and falls
  • Burns
  • Broken bones
  • Toxic exposure

Depending on the nature and extent of your injuries, you may suffer partial or total disability, which may be either temporary or permanent in nature. In general, this is the primary factor used to determine the amount of workers’ compensation you may receive. That being said, workers’ compensation generally covers the full cost of any medical expenses related to the accident/your injuries, as well as a specific amount of lost earnings.

The workers’ compensation system can be quite complex and many injured workers are unsure of their rights. At Whiteman, Hamilton & Conklin, LLC, we can handle every aspect of your claim so that you can focus on healing. When we accept your case, we strive to maximize your recovery.
