Workers’ Compensation Defense Lawyers in Georgia Protect Your Business
Skilled attorneys guard Savannah and Augusta employers against questionable claims
When an employee gets injured or becomes ill in the workplace, they may be eligible for workers’ compensation. Workers in Georgia and the Carolinas are entitled to benefits even if the company was not negligent or at fault. Fortunately, there are exceptions to workers’ compensation liability; at Brennan, Wasden & Painter LLC, we use those exceptions to protect our clients. And as in any case, our attention to detail will often reduce the cost of the employee’s claim by vetting the validity and severity of the alleged injury.
Understanding defenses to workers’ compensation claims
As experienced workers’ compensation attorneys, we are often able to establish effective defenses, including:
- There is a non-work-related cause of the injury
- The injury was preexisting or partially preexisting
- The extent of the injury is overstated
- The injury does not exist at all
We are resolved to defend your company vigorously in settlement negotiations and in litigation.
Recovering from other parties
When a worker’s injury was caused by another person, company or contractor, we are often able to bring a claim against that company to compensate our clients for the benefits they have paid out. In short, our attorneys help businesses recover damages from all responsible parties.
