WORKERS COMPENSATION PRACTICE
Jones Cork, LLP has an experienced team of attorneys who regularly practice in all areas of workers’ compensation from advising employers on risk reduction and cost containment to litigating cases at the administrative level through appeals to the State Board of Workers’ Compensation, the Superior Court, the Georgia Court of Appeals, and the Supreme Court of Georgia.
Jones Cork believes that the key to successful representation of employers and insurers in the workers’ compensation arena is in establishing relationships with its employers and understanding the nature of their businesses. We strive to evaluate each case and develop an immediate plan of action so that a realistic view of the case can be garnered as early as possible, allowing our clients to make informed decisions about whether to continue to pursue litigation or explore alternative measures.
We also have a strong employment law contingent that specializes in complex issues, offering our clients well-rounded representation in the employment arena. We stay abreast of current employment issues that can impact a claim and advise our clients accordingly.
Our firm provides seminars for claims adjusters and Human Resource employees on various workers’ compensation topics, including filing claims, controverting claims, handling the medical portion of claims, and recent changes in the law. Additionally, the firm conducts training in-house for employers on a wide range of topics, including the posted panel of physicians and the Georgia Drug Free Workplace Act.
