Dollars Recovered for Our Clients
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.

"When others lawyers/law firms left me for dead and wouldn’t take my case. This family based practice took on my difficult case & won! Totally grateful for the professionalism experienced. A++ THANKS!"
"Robert went above and beyond in helping me through a very difficult time in my life. He was willing to answer any questions I had, basically at any time of the day. If you ever find yourself dealing with workmans comp; I highly recommend seeking his services. Very caring and not just looking to make a quick dollar! Very rare!"
Although my chances of having any settlement at all look very bleak, Robert obtained my files and found the Dr. had given me an impairment rating that was never conveyed to me and I certainly was not compensated for it. Robert worked diligently and he did a great job questioning the person who had handled my claim. We settled at mediation for more than I thought would be possible. I cannot thank Robert enough for using his skills and expertise in handling my case.
“Robert Bourne was a Beacon of Hope to me at a time when my options appeared limited and the likelihood of a satisfactory resolution seemed nigh on impossible. It was a true blessing that I had found Robert at the right time Not only was he able to pull my case out of the mud due to another lawyers wrongdoing his empathetic demeanor offered emotional succor to myself and those I care about most . My children and I are eternally grateful for his service and I hereby recommend Robert Bourne without reservation. Thanks again Robert!”
Looking for an attorney is not an easy job. Checking references, reading bios, getting consultations. Then, meeting and discussing the case and getting their opinions. Most important, do they have your health and life as #1? Watching TV ads for dog food, lawn care or lawyers is not how to choose someone who really has your back. Do they live in your county, go to your church, shop where you shop? If so, they will represent you better than some commercial on TV! Robert is an upstanding individual who many people recommended. Not only as an outstanding attorney but upstanding citizen and human being.”
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.
Before any settlement is reached, we formulate what your compensation should be based on:
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.
