Your employer's insurance company has 21 days to either deny a claim or start sending payments. If you have been out of work for 21 days, it may be critical for you to receive these payments. Don't let them tell you that they do not have to do anything if your check arrives late. We can help you at any stage of this process, from the moment you are hurt to the administrative hearing and beyond.
Our diligent Atlanta back injury lawyers can help you when your workers' compensation claim is denied. If a claim is denied, you need to be notified of the stated reason.
