Experienced Workers’ Compensation Attorney Serving the Savannah Area
The U.S. has achieved tremendous strides in workplace safety over the last century, but there is still much to be done. In fact, even in the 21st Century, seldom a day goes by in this country without innocent and hardworking employees suffering injuries while on the job.
We see that here in Savannah and all across Georgia, where blue-collar and white-collar workers alike are routinely injured in the course of their job duties. The damages range in severity, from minor scrapes and sprains to life-altering accidents and even death.
The content on this page is designed to help the victims of particularly catastrophic accidents and injuries in the workplace, as well as their families.
While our office works with victims of all kinds of accidents throughout the entire state of Georgia, we want people who’ve suffered the worst kinds of damages to know they have a strong legal resource available to them right here in Savannah.

What Is a Catastrophic Accident?
Catastrophic accidents are those that cause serious and substantial hardship or devastation for their victims. The damages tend to be long-term or permanent in nature, and they fundamentally disrupt the victim’s way of life. While no two catastrophic accidents are quite alike, victims typically endure a diminished quality of life and may be unable to secure gainful employment as a result of the injury.
Examples of Catastrophic Accidents and Injuries in the Workplace
Common examples of catastrophic, job-related damages include:

Wrongful Death and Georgia Workers’ Compensation
While every catastrophic accident case is tragic, those that result in the loss of life are especially difficult to bear. Our law firm is dedicated to helping grieving families fight for justice during the worst chapters of their lives.
Under Georgia wrongful death law, specific family members are entitled to financial compensation for their losses after a loved one dies as a result of someone else’s negligence. These cases become much more complicated, though, when the Georgia Workers’ Compensation system is involved.
You need an experienced Savannah workers’ compensation attorney to guide you through the process and stringently investigate every possible source of compensation.
We realize, of course, that in the wake of tragedy, a challenging legal battle may be the furthest thing from your mind. Unfortunately, the state imposes strict time limits on these claims, and if you wait too long, you could forever miss out on the justice that you and your loved one deserve. That’s why our office is dedicated to completely shouldering this burden for you. Call us and let us fight the fight for you, just as we’ve done for so many other grieving families.
