  • Tips on Settlement with Ongoing Medical Problems - Georgia Workers' Compensation

    Sometimes a client will say, Mr. Keener, I want to settle my Georgia Workers' Compensation case but I can't because I'm still having medical problems. My reply to that is this; if you were not having any medical problems, or you were not expected to have any medical problems in the future. Or, if your medical problems were not affecting your ability to earn money now or in the future, guess how much your case would be worth. Zero. The only reason the insurance company will ever pay to settle a workers compensation case is to relieve themselves of the financial exposure associated with your case. And, the more clearly the insurance company recognizes their financial exposure on your case, the more they will pay to settle your case. If you have a medical problem that is not well docume...

  • The Natives and the English - Crash Course US History #3

    In which John Green teaches you about relations between the early English colonists and the native people the encountered in the New World. In short, these relations were poor. As soon as they arrived, the English were in conflict with the native people. At Jamestown, Captain John Smith briefly managed to get the colony on pretty solid footing with the local tribes, but it didn't last, and a long series of wars with the natives ensued. This pattern would continue in US history, with settlers pushing into native lands and pushing the inhabitants further west. In this episode, you'll learn about Wahunsunacawh (who the English called Powhatan), his daughter Pocahontas, King Philip's (aka Metacom) War, and the Mystic Massacre.

  • Workers Compensation Settlements in Georgia | Rechtman & Spevak

    I am often asked about settlements in Georgia workers' compensation cases. First of all, you have must understand that you can't get a settlement whenever you want. Settlements have to be agreed to by all the party's involved. It has to be when you want a settlement, the insurance company wants a settlement, the employer wants a settlement and everyone is on the same page and wants a settlement. If you are the only one who wants a settlement, it is often not going to happen. The factors that determine the workers' compensation settlement and the amount of the settlement depends on how much your case will cost the insurance company throughout your life if it is not settled. Every case is different, some of the factors include how old you are, how much are your weekly benefits (which are dep...

  • How a Mediation Can Help You Recover a Lump Sum Settlement

    Mediation can be a very effective tool in reaching a fair settlement of your Georgia workers’ compensation case. As I discuss in this video, workers’ compensation judges do not have the power to order the insurance company to pay out a lump sum, so the only way to reach a cash settlement would be through direct negotiation with the insurance company or through a mediation involving a neutral third party. I have found that mediation can be very effective if we choose the right time to negotiate and if we choose the right mediator. An impartial mediator will help both sides look at the strengths and weaknesses of your case, and a good mediator will offer input about a reasonable settlement value. This can be very helpful if the insurance company has an unreasonably low estimate about the ...

  • Lump Sum Settlements in Your Georgia Work Injury Case

    Workers compensation cases in Georgia do not have to end with a lump sum settlement and no judge is going to order the insurance company to issue a lump sum cash payment to you. Instead, Georgia work injury cases settle because you want to settle and the insurance company agrees on a dollar figure to close out your case. As I discuss in this video, you should not settle your case for a lump sum unless you and your lawyer decide that the time is right. When you settle, your weekly benefits payments (TTD checks) will stop. Your company paid medical care will also stop. At Ginsberg Law Offices, I only recommend settlement when the medical records tell me that my client’s medical condition is stable or that we can estimate future medical needs, or that, based on my experience, this is t...

From a small abandoned village in Argentina that tourists flock to to a village on top of a mountain people left completely empty! Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr 8. Gamsutl’ Located at the top of a mountain in the district of Dagestan, Russia the name of this abandoned village translates to ‘at the foot of khan’s fortress.” Neither the name of the Khan or the date of the town's inception were recorded. People populated the village into the 20th century, and there were shops, a school and a hospital there. Slowly over the last century people left in search of a better life in a larger town until the village was completely abandoned. 7. Epecuen Today this small village in Argentina lies almost entirely abandoned after a flood ravaged the area in 1985. Starting in the 1920’s Epecuen was an ideal tourist village thanks to its easy accessibility and proximity to Buenos Aires. The healing waters of Lago Epecuen also drew many people to the destination. During this time the town attracted 25,000 tourists annually and had a population of 1,500 while also having around 280 businesses. A rare weather pattern caused the nearby dam and then the dike protecting the village to break. The ensuing flood resulted in residents deserting the town. To call it abandoned, however, would be a lie. In 2009 Pablo Novak returned to his home after waters receded, becoming the sole resident of Epecuen. 6. Sandy Point At one time Sandy Point was the largest human settlement on the west coast of Newfoundland and functioned as a major port and supply center for the region. Over time Sandy Point became known for a genetic defect shared amongst its population called Allderdice syndrome. People started leaving in 1949 when the provincial government paid the residents to relocate to nearby St. George, which lay on the country’s main railway line. Two residents remained until the 1970’s when they were finally forced to leave. 5. Paris Paris is an abandoned settlement on Kiritimati Island in Kiribati. Father Emmanuel Rougier, a bearded French priest who renounced his church and became a coconut harvester occupied the area from 1917 to 1939. In this time Rougier would plant around three-quarters of a million coconut trees which yielded him around one dollar a year per tree, a tidy sum, especially in those days. Experts feel that the lack of easy access led people to abandon Paris in favor of nearby London, another settlement on the island. 4. Humberstone Humberstone stands out for being peculiarly British amongst the other Spanish names that occupy northern Chile on a map. This former mining town takes its name from James Humberstone, a British chemical engineer who traveled to the area in 1875. The entrepreneur made his fortune by mining saltpeter, or white gold, out of the areas earth. The substance was in huge demand in Europe during this time and became the primary source of revenue for Chile. The saltpeter works have been fully abandoned since 1960 and were named a World Heritage Site in 2005. 3. Tyneham Experts have unearthed evidence of Roman occupation in this Dorset village dating back to the Iron Age. The limestone church, which along with a school house is preserved as a museum and dates back to the 13th Century. The British Army used the area for military training starting in the 1940’s. This occupation was supposed to be temporary but the Army ended up placing a compulsory purchase order on the land, and it has been used by the military as a firing range ever since. People would never reoccupy the area permanently. The Ministry of Defence began opening the town to the public on weekends in 1975 after numerous complaints from tourists and locals. 2. Tung Ping Chau Lying off the coast of Hong Kong this island is uninhabited today but has a rich and sordid history. Tung Ping Chau once had a thriving fishing community and 3,000 permanent residents. During the Japanese occupation of the country, the island was used to supply military resources to the Chinese army. The economy of the island started to deteriorate in the 1950’s when stocks began to dry up. Only a few older adults remained on the island in the 1970’s and finally, in 2004 the last permanent residents left. The island was also once used to smuggle drugs and weapons. 1. Leith Harbour While in operation from 1909 to 1965 this whaling station in South Georgia was one of the busiest on earth processing nearly fifty thousand whales. In its heyday, the harbor boasted a hospital, library, and a cinema. People attempted to introduce reindeer to Leith Harbour in 1912, a plan that ended in failure when an avalanche destroyed the herd in 1918. The Allies used Leith Harbour during World War 2, and its defense was overseen by the British throughout the war. Access to Leith Harbour became restricted in 2010 due to asbestos concerns and collapsing buildings. Today the area lies utterly abandoned and is slowly being overtaken by the area’s wildlife.

Sometimes a client will say, Mr. Keener, I want to settle my Georgia Workers' Compensation case but I can't because I'm still having medical problems. My reply to that is this; if you were not having any medical problems, or you were not expected to have any medical problems in the future. Or, if your medical problems were not affecting your ability to earn money now or in the future, guess how much your case would be worth. Zero. The only reason the insurance company will ever pay to settle a workers compensation case is to relieve themselves of the financial exposure associated with your case. And, the more clearly the insurance company recognizes their financial exposure on your case, the more they will pay to settle your case. If you have a medical problem that is not well documented, as far as the insurance company is concerned, it doesn't exist and they are not going to pay you for it. When you visit your doctor, it is critically important that your doctor write into his medical records all of your problems. He or she can only do that if they are aware of your medical problems. I tell my clients that when they go to see the doctor make a list of all your medical problems in advance so when you get to your doctor's appointment you don't forget to talk with your doctor about a problem you are having and then all your medical problems get written into the doctor's records. It's a win/win situation... when your doctor understands ALL of your medical problems can he or she prescribe a treatment plan to address all of the medical issues you have suffered from your job injury. When your medical records reflect the full extent of all the medical issues you are having from your job injury, the insurance company will be in the best position possible to accurately evaluate your case and settle your case for full value. Trust me, the insurance company will not help you understand the full extent of your medical issues and will frequently even block your ability to see a doctor or get objective testing so that those other issues are not included in the value of your settlement. Don't let that happen to you. Make sure that before your case is settled, all of your medical issues are fully documented. Doctors are busy and frequently this takes multiple communications with the doctor to make sure all of your issues are fully documented and fully identified as being related to your original job injury.

Mediation is a time for all the parties to a case to meet together with a neutral 3rd party professionally trained mediator to try to get your case settled. It usually takes place either at the Georgia State Board of Workers' Compensation, or at the office of the mediator. Who is going to be there? Usually it's: You and your lawyer, Insurance company lawyer, The mediator Sometimes, an insurance company adjuster or a representative from the employer will be there, but not usually. What's the role of the mediator? (Their role is that of a neutral third party. He or she doesn't have a dog in the fight so to speak. They are not your friend, but they are not the friend of the other side either. They will frequently say they are the friend of the deal. They're just trying to get the case settled. That's their job.) What's your role at the mediation? Are you going to have to talk? Don't worry about that. With the right lawyer, most clients are happy to know they won't have to say a word. If you are not comfortable talking about your case and don't know how to express all the issues, don't worry, that's why you picked out an experienced lawyer. An experienced lawyer will be very familiar with your case and very familiar with the laws that apply to your case. If you do want to say something, that's probably ok too. You're just going to want to talk about it with your lawyer before you do. You don't want to accidentally say something that could wreck your case. At the beginning of mediation all the parties will come together in the same room. They'll basically introduce themselves and say hello. The facts of your case may be discussed at that time in the group meeting or the lawyers may have already provided a case summary to the mediator. After the initial meeting the parties will generally break up into two separate rooms. One with you and your lawyer, and a completely different room with the other parties. After that the mediator will walk back and forth between the rooms discussing the good and bad parts of your case and conveying settlement offers back and forth between the parties. Don't worry if you think the mediation is getting off to a slow start. There is usually a certain amount of jockeying or posturing at the beginning of the mediation until both sides settle into the real negotiations later on. There are lots of different mediation strategies and an experienced lawyer will help you choose the one that is best for your particular case. Also, please realize that during the mediation you will have plenty of private time with your lawyer where the two of you can discuss what's going on and what strategy to use to get you the very best settlement possible. At the end of the mediation your case will have either settle or not. If you do get your case settled, you'll probably have your money within about 30 days. On the other hand, if it doesn't settle, your case just continues on as though the mediation never happened. A mediation is usually the very best opportunity for all the parties to come together to try to get your case settled. You need to realize that in order to get the most value for your case, there will be good and bad times during your case to seek a mediation. It's important to have an experienced lawyer help you figure out the very best time to mediate your case. If you and your lawyer have chosen the very best time to mediate your case and you've chosen an experienced lawyer to build and present your case, you'll stand the very best opportunity to have your case settled for the most value. Be sure you have a lawyer representing you with plenty of mediation experience. You'll likely only get one chance to get it right. So you're going to want to make it count.

As soon as they arrived, the English were in conflict with the native people. At Jamestown, Captain John Smith briefly managed to get the colony on pretty solid footing with the local tribes, but it didn't last, and a long series of wars with the natives ensued. This pattern would continue in US history, with settlers pushing into native lands and pushing the inhabitants further west. In this episode, you'll learn about Wahunsunacawh (who the English called Powhatan), his daughter Pocahontas, King Philip's (aka Metacom) War, and the Mystic Massacre. By and large, the history of the Natives and the English was not a happy one, even Thanksgiving wasn't all it's cracked up to be.

I am often asked about settlements in Georgia workers' compensation cases. First of all, you have must understand that you can't get a settlement whenever you want. Settlements have to be agreed to by all the party's involved. It has to be when you want a settlement, the insurance company wants a settlement, the employer wants a settlement and everyone is on the same page and wants a settlement. If you are the only one who wants a settlement, it is often not going to happen. The factors that determine the workers' compensation settlement and the amount of the settlement depends on how much your case will cost the insurance company throughout your life if it is not settled. Every case is different, some of the factors include how old you are, how much are your weekly benefits (which are dependent on how much you were earning when you were hurt), and how long do you expect to be disabled. http://www.rsinjurylawyers.com/video/workers-compensation-settlements-in-georgia.cfm If you have any questions following a work injury in Georgia, do not hesitate to contact our office.

If you or a loved one have been injured in a car accident or in a nursing home, then please call (678) 823-7678 and speak to an experienced Atlanta Personal Injury Lawyer at Schenk Smith today. Or, feel free to browse https://www.schenksmith.com for more information about your case. When a nursing home or assisted living facility abuses or neglects a resident, which causes that resident’s injury or death, then that facility is responsible and liable to the resident for the harms caused. This is the basis of nursing home abuse and neglect lawsuits in Georgia. However, not all nursing home abuse cases are taken to trial. Like most other personal injury cases, there are times when it is advantageous to settle a claim prior to verdict. Taking claims through litigation can be very expensive. In our civil justice system, each side pays its own way- even the non-liable party. So, settlement will make sense when the amount offered by the nursing home’s insurance company is close to an amount that would have been received at trial, less expenses. At Schenk Smith, we only accept a nursing home abuse or negligence case with the understanding that if we do not receive an appropriate settlement offer, we take the case to trial, or where applicable, to arbitration. This lets the nursing home insurers know that we are serious about our cases. Still, we are sensitive to the desires of our clients. Some of our clients do not wish to “relive” the incident that lead to their loved one’s death. Some wish to stay out of court. We understand that. In those cases, and others, we reach out to the nursing home’s insurance company and attempt to mediate a settlement prior to filing suit. With mediation, both sides present evidence, and an independent mediator attempts to facilitate a settlement. If both parties agree, then the case settles then and there and the case is over. We have found that mediation is an excellent way to bring resolution to a claim, and our clients have been very happy with the results. Our office has settled claims for nursing home abuse and neglect through mediation for different types of claims, including bed sores and other physical injuries, among others. If your loved one has been injured or passed away at a nursing home or assisted living facility, and you are wondering what your settlement options are, then please, feel free to call and speak to one of our experienced Georgia nursing home abuse lawyers today. Our consultations are always free.

Georgia Car Accident & Personal Injury Attorney 770-577-3020 http://murphylawyer.com Our client Mark, was a hard-working young man who moved furniture for a living, and was able to pay his bills. But when another driver hit Mark and crashed his car, Mark was unable to lift heavy objects or move around like he used to because of all the pain and stiffness. Mark came to see James Murphy at his law office in Douglasville. We wanted to help Mark get back on his feet again, and help him with his case. First Mark went to a physical therapist for his neck and back problems, but even after intense treatment, he was not getting better. Then we referred Mark to an orthopedic surgeon who was able to diagnose Mark by means of an MRI. Mark had a herniated disc. The surgeon recommended surgery. Yet, there was no guarantee that the surgery would help Mark. We helped Mark through these difficult decisions, and eventually Mark got the surgery. We are happy to say that the surgery was successful and Mark is on his way to recovery.

Mediation can be a very effective tool in reaching a fair settlement of your Georgia workers’ compensation case. As I discuss in this video, workers’ compensation judges do not have the power to order the insurance company to pay out a lump sum, so the only way to reach a cash settlement would be through direct negotiation with the insurance company or through a mediation involving a neutral third party. I have found that mediation can be very effective if we choose the right time to negotiate and if we choose the right mediator. An impartial mediator will help both sides look at the strengths and weaknesses of your case, and a good mediator will offer input about a reasonable settlement value. This can be very helpful if the insurance company has an unreasonably low estimate about the value of your case. In many ways a mediation is kind of like a mini-trial of your case, but either side can back out if negotiations hit an impasse. My experience, however, has been that if you have a strong case, a mediation can be the most effective tool to reach a fair, lump sum settlement. ===============Free Case Evaluation=============== If you or a loved one would like a case evaluation for your Georgia workers' compensation claim, please call me at 770-351-0801 or email me at http://bit.ly/jodi-help. ===========Georgia Work Injury Survival Kit=========== **Get my Free Survival Kit If you don't know where to begin, then start with my "Georgia Workers' Compensation Survival Kit" that I created for you.

Car Accident & Head Injury Attorney in Douglasville, Georgia 770-577-3020 https://murphylawyer.com Our client, Ronnie, suffered a concussion from his auto accident in Georgia. Typically, an insurance company will offer a very low settlement amount for a concussion, because concussions generally don't cause life-lasting repercussions. However, Ronnie was a different case. At first, Ronnie treated with the Chiropractor for his soft tissue (whiplash and back problems) injuries, which eventually healed. Ronnie also suffered migraines, frequently. His treatment with the chiropractor was not helping his migraines go away. At first, Ronnie was not going to get a lawyer, but because the insurance company wasn't going to give him a fair amount, he finally decided to get help. He called James Murphy, an attorney at Murphy Law Firm in Douglasville, GA. James recommended he get checked out by a doctor for his migraines, so we helped him get to a neurologist. The neurologist diagnosed the issue Ronnie was having, and told the court that there was a good chance that Ronnie's concussion would have life-long effects, and that he could possibly have the migraines for the rest of his life. We were able to settle Ronnie's case for $50,000. If you hire us as your law firm, we can't guarantee that we will be able to get you the same settlement amount, because each case is different. BUT we can promise that we will fight for you just as hard as we fought for Ronnie, and try and get you the maximum amount of compensation available to you for your Georgia auto accident. Law Office: 8302 Office Park Drive, Douglasville GA 30134 Transcript: You know, you generally feel pretty safe when you are in a big pickup truck driving down a country road in Douglas County. And Ronnie felt safe on the morning he was going to work, no traffic on the road, but when a teenage kid turned out of a convenient store, and T-boned him on his drivers side. There wasn't a thing Ronnie could do to protect himself. Fortunately Ronnie had his seat belt on, but the unfortunate thing was that he hit his head on the window on the drivers side. When he went to the emergency room, the doctor said he had a concussion. After that, Ronnie tried to get on with his life, saw the chiropractor, had some adjustments, and was generally feeling ok in his neck and back. But the problem was, his headaches didn't seem to want to go away. Ronnie didn't want to talk to a lawyer, but as the statute of limitations started to approach, he came in to see me. We were able to file suit, and fortunately Ronnie got to see a neurologist that was able to treat him and determine that the headaches he was experiencing were migraine headaches that were related to the car accident. Before Ronnie saw the neurologist, the insurance company was offering a very small amount of money on his case and it didn't make sense for Ronnie to settle. It took almost 4 years for Ronnie to document the injuries and to fully understand what was happening to him. We settled the case for close to $50,000. I can't guarantee you a result like this in your case, but if you come to see me before you settle with the insurance company, I can give you advice about what may be the best course to take. Please be advised that this video is not legal advice. I'm not your lawyer until you and I enter a written agreement for me to be your lawyer. I know the arguments the insurance company will make - and so should you - even before you file your claim. I can offer suggestions and identify traps, but please do not construe anything in this video to be legal advice about your case, as each case is different and an attorney can only give you quality legal advice when he or she understands the facts involved in your case.

Workers compensation cases in Georgia do not have to end with a lump sum settlement and no judge is going to order the insurance company to issue a lump sum cash payment to you. Instead, Georgia work injury cases settle because you want to settle and the insurance company agrees on a dollar figure to close out your case. As I discuss in this video, you should not settle your case for a lump sum unless you and your lawyer decide that the time is right. When you settle, your weekly benefits payments (TTD checks) will stop. Your company paid medical care will also stop. At Ginsberg Law Offices, I only recommend settlement when the medical records tell me that my client’s medical condition is stable or that we can estimate future medical needs, or that, based on my experience, this is the right time to try to settle. If you settle your case too soon, you may be leaving money on the table, but if you wait too late, the settlement value of your case will begin to decline.
