Over 35 years of combined experience handling workers' compensation and personal injury cases

Our founding Attorney, Robert Bourne, has devoted his entire legal career to helping injured workers. He is a former president of the Workers Compensation Section of the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association and a former vice president of the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association. He was appointed to serve on the Governor’s Advisory Council for Workers Compensation. He has also served on the Chairman’s Advisory Council of the State Board of Workers Compensation. We work with clients all over Georgia.

We focus on workers' compensation and personal injury cases. That’s all we do. While other lawyers claim to handle workers' compensation cases, at Bourne Law Firm, we dedicate more than 75 percent of our practice to on-the-job injuries. We have dedicated decades to helping injured workers just like you. We are asked to speak to other lawyers at legal seminars across the state of Georgia to educate them about workers' compensation. Other attorneys refer complicated workers' compensation cases to us because they trust our reputation and expertise in the field.

Reviews From Our Clients

Were you or a loved one hurt at work?

When you suffer an injury, you want someone with a personal touch who will handle your matter personally. I often hear from people who are frustrated with workers' compensation lawyers who will not return their phone calls. We are a local, family-owned firm and we don’t employ case managers or clerks to screen our calls.

I understand that litigation can a stressfull experience. My job is not only to make sure you get the maximum recovery in your case, but also to guide you through the process and make sure stay informed every step of the way. If we accept your case, you will be able to reach me at any time directly on my personal cell phone.

Don't wait to contact an attorney if you get hurt at work. The clock is ticking on your case. the Georgia statute of limitations restricts the amount of time injured workers have to file a claim to within one year of the accident date—not two years as in other personal injury claims. Also, workers compensation laws in Georgia have many deadlines and traps that could damage the value of your case.

What Is My Workers Compensation Case Worth

Before any settlement is reached, we formulate what your compensation should be based on:

  • Future Medical Costs: We will collect all of the medical records from your treating doctors to estimate the future medical costs in your case.
  • Lost Wages: We will estimate how much the insurance company will have to pay you for lost wages throughout the course of the claim. Workers Comp owes you two thrids of your average wage for as long as you are out of work because of your injury or your employer cannot provide light duty work for you (in most cases you can draw these benefits for a maximum of 400 weeks)
  • Money for Permanent Disability: If you are still having issues when you complete medical treatment, it is likely that your treating doctor will give you what is called a "impairment rating". Based on the impairment rating, you will be entitled to a certain amount of weekly checks. If you have not yet recived an impairment rating, we will estimate what a fair rating would be based on the American Medical Associations disability guidelines.

Even though our firm has recovered millions for injured workers in Georgia, every workplace accident case is different. In virtually every workers' comp claim, the insurance company is trying terminate your benefits as soon as possible. The insurance companies know that our firm fights agressively to protect our clients and make sure they keep drawing the maxium amount of benefits. We prepare each workers comp case as if it’s going to trial. We can help you get a higher Georgia workers’ compensation claim settlement. Contact us today for your free consultation.
