Surgery denied by workers' comp.

Sadly, may injured workers' in Georgia are denied surgery by a workers' compensation carrier even though their claim is accepted. Workers' compensation carriers often do not want to pay for a procedure and look for any reason to deny surgery. Most commonly, a work comp adjuster will allege that the surgery is not reasonable and medically necessary or that the procedure is unrelated to the job accident. If you want to undergo surgery that has been recommended by a doctor, you should call an attorney as soon as possible. You have the right to a hearing to determine if work comp has to pay for the surgery. If you would like to discuss your claim, contact Atlanta work injury attorney Brian H. Sumrall at (404)924-4595 or visit
