Boss Asked You Not to File Workers’ Comp?

Atlanta Attorney Explains What to Do

Rob Rosenthal:

Can you trust your employer if they tell you you don't need to file a workers’ comp claim? We ask Atlanta attorney Sara Stottlemyer in this AskTheLawyers™ Quick Question.

Sarah Stottlemyer:

That does happen. If your employer is saying, “We'll pay you under the table. We'll pay for all of your out-of-pocket expenses.” I've seen that happen in a lot of my cases, and inevitably, it always ends up being too much money for the employer toward the end when they start getting MRI bills and things that's even prior to any sort of surgery being recommended. And then you're past the notice deadline; you can make the argument that the employer knew, obviously they were paying for all of that medical treatment themselves kind of under the table, but I would recommend not doing that ever. Because again, I've never seen it where the employer has covered those expenses, and not later than said, “Well, this is too much money. We can't do this anymore.” So I would recommend getting an attorney involved as fast as possible.
