Experienced legal counsel can be extremely helpful in the preparation of a Workers’ Compensation case in Georgia. Prior injuries or medical conditions are favorite subjects for impeachment or discrediting of the employee. An attorney can help to minimize the effects of such information on behalf of the employee. There may be written or recorded statements taken by the employer or insurer that can be reviewed. These should be pursued in discovery, which is a very common practice for experienced legal counsel.
