Atlanta, GA -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/01/2019 -- The Law Offices of Darwin F. Johnson are the most reliable worker's comp attorneys in Atlanta, Georgia. Due to the amount of workplace compensation claims that they successfully manage, they advise on the basics of how a workers' compensation claim works. Below is a summary of the information that Darwin F. Johnson provides.

Specifics of the workers' compensation claims process vary from state to state. However, injured employees must generally notify their employer and the workers' comp carrier. Regardless of state laws, however, injured employees are always encouraged to obtain any necessary medical treatment first.

Before filing an official workers' comp claim, it's recommended that all claimants seek necessary medical treatment. Some comp policies require that injured employees are seen by a specific doctor. However, many state laws allow claimants to seek a second medical opinion if they are dissatisfied with the first one. Even if they don't feel the need to get medical attention, it may well be a legal requirement to process your claim.

It's essential to notify an employer about the injury within the statutory deadline, or as soon as the injury occurs. Additionally, it's critical to report all workplace accidents even if an injury hasn't been sustained, just in case an injury is discovered after the deadline for reporting an accident expires.

Most of the claimant side of the workers' compensation process has been completed after filling out all the necessary paperwork. However, an individual may still want to follow up on their claim and make sure that they keep detailed records. For instance, an employee may want to keep a journal of how the injury affects their day-to-day activities. They may also want to keep an inventory of all costs and proof of costs related to the problems caused by the injury.
