Atlanta Workers' Compensation Lawyers WITH OVER 60 YEARS OF COMBINED EXPERIENCE
We have an office in Atlanta
When a person is injured on the job, it is one of the hardest times that a person can face in their lifetime. You are hurt, unable to work and the insurance company just doesn't care about you. The insurance companies routinely delay and deny benefits to injured workers without legal representation. The insurance company delays your weekly checks, refuses to pay for medical treatment you desperately need and then, they offer low settlement amounts, hoping that you will just settle and never seek the advice of a lawyer. Our lawyers are here to break that cycle!

If you or a member of your family have suffered a serious injury or death, don't let yourself be intimidated by an insurance company, an employer or by a medical provider. Your health and your future are too important. Every day, severely injured people are forced into a system that is not designed to protect their rights unless they have legal representation. To get the compensation to which you are entitled by law, contact The law office of J. Franklin Burns, P.C.
We handle personal injury, workers' compensation, medical malpractice and wrongful death claims. We represent the families of loved ones killed by the negligence of others and people who have suffered life-changing injuries that may require months or years of medical treatment and rehabilitation to return to the lives they had before suffering their injuries.

Unlike many lawyers, we don't seek the quick settlement of injury claims. In serious injury cases, reaching a quick settlement may only benefit the insurance company, and the injured may not receive enough money to pay the medical bills, much less compensate them for everything they have lost.
At the law office of J. Franklin Burns, P.C., we are willing to take your case as far as it needs to go to help you obtain compensation. We have over 60 years experience obtaining justice for our clients.
