Film Employees in Georgia

According to the Georgia Department of Economic Development, there are more than 30,000 employees working on film sets every day.  If these employees were considered part of a single employer, it would rank them near the top of Georgia.  Unlike many jobs, the likelihood of work injuries grows substantially when boom mic, ladders, trucks, and heavy camera equipment is quickly moving across the set.  Add the stuntman scenes to the mix, and there is a recipe for danger and work injuries.

As highlighted by Craig Miller Productions Blog , the Atlanta film industry represents “…$9.5 billion in FY 2017.  This number represents 320 feature film and television productions shot in Georgia and $2.7 billion in direct spending in the state.”

It turned out to be the best decision I have made in a long, long time.

I got injured at work. Trying to deal with the insurance company became overwhelming mainly because I needed surgery and they would not respond to my calls or emails. I researched local attorneys and decided to choose Gearhart Law Group mainly because it was smaller, I liked the information I read and I felt I might get more individual attention. It turned out to be the best decision I have made in a long, long time. Beth Gearhart made me feel as though I were her only client. She responded to my emails immediately, every time. She explained the whole process from the beginning and everything unfolded exactly as she explained it would. The process took time but I received the surgery I needed and in the end was very surprised by the large financial settlement I received due to Ms. Gearhart’s expertise. I highly recommend Gearhart Law Group.
