Investigation And Action For Victims Of On-The-Job Accidents

Many people across Georgia face injury risks daily while working in hazardous occupations on construction sites and farms, auto plants, food processing facilities, and other factories. Others have no cause to anticipate being seriously hurt at work, but the reality is that serious accidents can occur in any workplace.  Most of the time, your claim may be limited to pursuing a workers’ compensation settlement when you are injured on the job.  However, there are times when a third party, other than your employer, may also be held liable for your injuries.  Those claims are many times ignored or compromised by not addressing them early in the process.

Report Injuries And Get Prompt Medical Attention To Preserve Your Claims

What should you do after suffering a work-related accident? The critical early steps are to notify your employer and get prompt medical attention. These actions can help protect your right to workers’ compensation benefits. If you know your injuries are serious or think that they might be, you should also get in touch with an accomplished lawyer with experience in both workers’ comp and personal injury litigation.

Turn To Our Legal Team For Analysis And Protection Of Your Rights

One of our firm’s key strengths is Mr. Hays’ ability to work with experts in other fields in order to determine when legal actions against someone other than your employer are justified. In the legal community, this is commonly called a third-party liability claim. In some cases, skillful pursuit of such a claim can yield far greater financial assistance than a workers’ compensation claim alone.

At the Law Office of Derek M. Hays in Lawrenceville, we will treat you with compassion and assess every path to financial recovery. Mr. Hays has many years of experience representing injured workers and families grieving after fatal accidents on the job.

We are prepared to thoroughly evaluate and explain your legal options after any serious work-related accident, including:

  • A fall from heights, explosion or another traumatic event on a construction site
  • A car accident or another motor vehicle accident that occurred while you were driving for work
  • An equipment failure or malfunction in any industrial or office setting
