Bryan M. Pritchett
- Workers' Compensation
Bryan Pritchett earned his undergraduate degree in English from the University of Georgia and remained in Athens to attend the University of Georgia School of Law, where he graduated in May 2000. He briefly worked as an Assistant District Attorney before joining several of Georgia's largest insurance defense firms, where he represented insurance companies and employers in workers' compensation and liability cases in Georgia. Bryan began representing injured workers and victims of third-party liability claims in late 2004.
For the past 17 years, Bryan's practice has been devoted to representing injured workers. In addition to representing injured workers, Bryan is excited to expand his practice to include working as a mediator helping to resolve workers' compensation claims.
Bryan has 20-plus years of experience litigating all aspects of workers' compensation. He has tried cases at every level, even winning an appeal before the Court of Appeals in Georgia, securing the favorable decision in Renu Thrift Store, Inc. v. Figueroa, 649 S.E.2d 529 (Ga. Ct. App. 2007), which clarified the rights of injured workers when benefits are paid late pursuant to O.C.G.A. §34-9-221(b) as well as further defining the statute of repose on alleged overpayments pursuant to O.C.G.A. §34-9-245.
Outside of work, Bryan spends as much time as possible with his wife, also an attorney in the field of workers' compensation, their 4 children (ages 6 through 17), and a multitude of cats and dogs. He is a native Atlantan and avid Braves and Bulldogs fan. (He also supports the Falcons and Hawks because he feels obligated at some level even though they have crushed his hopes for over 40 years.) In addition to being an armchair sports fan, Bryan loves comic books and movies and is very proud of his baseball card collection.
