Suffering an injury at work can be devastating and turn your whole world upside down. The normal procedure is to file a claim through your employer’s workers’ compensation program, which is designed to cover your medical bills and a portion of your wages.
However, if another party was involved in causing your injury, you may be able to file an additional claim against that party and seek compensation. Our experienced team at Hilley & Frieder, P.C., is devoted to assisting injured workers obtain the maximum amount of compensation in Atlanta and surrounding area of Georgia.

For example: You suffer a fall from a faulty crane on a construction site that was owned by another company, and an investigation reveals that the company failed to conduct a safety inspection of the crane on the morning of your accident. If the fault is a problem that would have been discovered during the inspection, you would probably be able to file a third-party claim.
