Injuries to the spine are the injuries we see most frequently in Georgia workers’ compensation law. Often –but not always– a herniated disc will require surgical intervention of some sort in order for the injured worker to return to work. Having the right workers’ compensation doctor on your side is critical in any case, but it’s especially important when surgery appears to be necessary. Don’t trust an insurance adjuster in another state to determine what kind of medical treatment you get for your herniated disc and from what doctor! For your advice, turn to an experienced workers’ compensation attorney who has worked with surgeons all over Georgia.
