BigNews.Biz - Apr 12,2012 - Atlanta, GA – Atlanta Workers’ Compensation attorney John Ashton Snyder states, "Workers’ comp is a very complex area of law." To make workers' compensation easier to understand, Mr. Snyder has published An Introduction to the Georgia's Workers' Compensation Act on his website. This clearly written guide provides clients and potential clients with valuable information about Georgia workers' compensation law and covers issues such as how workers' comp differs from health insurance, how to report a work-related injury or disease, and how income benefits are calculated. The guide is based on Snyder's expertise and years of experience in his law practice, which focuses on cases related to workers’ compensation, auto accidents, veterans’ disability, and Social Security disability.
Mr. Snyder explains that workers' compensation laws vary from state to state, but they are all intended to protect injured workers and ensure that workers get the medical care they need. In addition, the law covers lost wages related to the injury, and if necessary, retraining and rehabilitation. If a worker is killed on the job, members of the worker's family are eligible for benefits, as well. Snyder advises, "Don’t assume that your injury isn’t covered based on what you know about workers’ compensation laws. In Georgia, employees who are injured on the job may receive full medical benefits, with no time or monetary limits."
No one expects to be hurt on the job, but injuries do happen. Injured workers need to be informed about their rights under the workers’ compensation law, but information alone is not enough. Finding an experienced and aggressive advocate for a workers’ comp claim can mean the difference in winning a fair settlement or settling for what the employer’s insurance company wants to pay. John A. Snyder has helped numerous clients fight and win fair and reasonable settlements. As one client writes, "Without John’s help, we would have lost our home and probably our only car. With John’s help we were able to stay on track and get the proper medical attention and satisfaction that was due."
