Should I give a recorded statement after a workplace injury in Augusta?
I had a lady who was injured at the John Deere plant in Grovetown, Georgia call me and ask me if she should talk to the insurance adjuster about her workers’ compensation case and give a recorded statement. If you’re reading this, you may have a similar question. I’ll tell you what I told the client.
Always talk with your employer supervisors and follow all policies and procedures with your employer. Communicate with your employer and make every accommodation and answer every question your employer asks you about your work injury. However, when it comes to an insurance adjuster, I would advise you not to talk to the insurance adjuster and, instead, seek legal representation right away with an attorney that has experience and success with Georgia workers’ compensation cases. These insurance adjusters are trained to ask questions that will get unfavorable information about your case and favorable information about their case. It will help devalue your case and maybe give them ammunition to deny your case.
If you have questions about your Georgia workers’ compensation case, give us a call. We’d be happy to help.
