A positive drug test is not always a bar to your Atlanta workers' compensation claim.

Many workers’ compensation claimants have positive drug screens following work injuries as a result of prescription medications. Unfortunately, claims adjusters and employers frequently believe any positive drug screen is a bar to your Atlanta workers’ comp claim. This is simply not true. If a drug screen is positive because of a prescription medication, or if a urine or blood sample is not taken within a certain amount of time following your accident, the positive screen does not bar your claim. If you believe your Georgia work injury claim has been improperly denied, or if the insurance company is not providing you all of the medical treatment you need, call Atlanta work injury attorney Brian Sumrall at (404) 857-3835.
