It’s important that injured workers understand what their rights are and how to protect them, especially if they are going to be out of work for any length of time.
Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) October 07, 2015
Workers’ compensation attorney Benjamin Y. Gerber recently appeared as a guest on the radio show Atlanta Legal Experts. The show is part of the Business RadioX line-up and features a question and answer format with leading lawyers practicing in metro-Atlanta.
Gerber appeared at the invitation of host, Emily Rowell, and discussed a variety of issues related to workers’ compensation claims, including the challenges associated with receiving benefits. He said he believes that more public awareness about the work comp claims process would help benefit injured workers and their families when accidents occur.
“Like many areas of the law, workers’ compensation tends to be layered with many myths and misconceptions,” said Gerber. “It’s important that injured workers understand what their rights are and how to protect them, especially if they are going to be out of work for any length of time.”
Atlanta Legal Experts has become a valuable tool in building community awareness around legal issues facing individuals, families, businesses and even attorneys. Rowell expounded on the show’s goals, saying “Our show is designed to cover the most important things that listeners should know if they are faced with a legal issue. Every week, we have some of the area’s top legal minds discussing real-life cases, law changes, and pitfalls to avoid, which is not only interesting but also entertaining. It was great to have Ben in the studio sharing his knowledge.”
Gerber is scheduled to speak at next month’s “Specializing to Succeed” continuing legal education seminar sponsored by the Atlanta Bar Association. His session is titled “Workers Compensation: injured on the job and using your employment benefits without losing employment.”
