Some workplace injuries are so severe that the worker is never able to return to work. If this has happened to you, or your loved one, contact the Georgia catastrophic injury lawyers at the Atlanta, Georgia, law firm of Long & Holder for your free consultation. Jim Long and Tom Holder can make sure you get the lifetime benefits you need in your case.
With typical Workers' Compensation claims, 400 weeks is the longest someone can collect benefits. What do you do if you've suffered a traumatic brain injury? Or what if you've suffered a back injury that is permanent but not so clearly defined in Georgia's Workers' Compensation law?
People who've suffered catastrophic injuries can qualify for lifetime income benefits. The Georgia catastrophic injury lawyers at Long & Holder have the experience to fight for your rights to get those benefits. We've been advocating for injured workers for 24 years.
Some catastrophic injuries that qualify for permanent benefits include:
- Amputation or a lost limb
- Head trauma
- Paralysis/paraplegia/quadriplegia/severe spinal cord injury
- Serious second-degree burns or third-degree burns
- Total or partial blindness
