Many employers simply terminate employees after they report a workers' compensation claim. Employers sometimes think that terminating an injured worker is the easiest way to deal with the claim, or they feel that if they fire the injured worker they will no longer have a valid claim. If you have been terminated as a result of your job injury, there is a good chance that you are entitled to workers' comp income benefits. If you have questions about a termination following a job injury, contact Atlanta attoreny Brian H. Sumrall at (404) 857-3835 to discuss your claim, or visit our website at
