Also, they may pay what you think is a large amount of money but are actually entitled to much more under Georgia law.
Your family deserves to have full compensation for the death of a loved on that occurs on the job. The compensation for the work accident should include income benefits, medical payments, funeral expenses and more. This money can be what keeps a family from going under financially in this difficult time. Please contact us for a free case evaluation and strategy session.
