Workers’ Comp Community Mourns the Loss of Dr. J. Carl Sutton

Written by: Michael Memberg, Esq.

One of the most experienced and well-respected members of the workers’ compensation community, Dr. J. Carl Sutton, recently passed away. Dr. Sutton and his orthopedic practice, Sutton Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine, served as a panel provider for countless employers on the Southside of Atlanta and across Georgia. He will certainly be missed by employers and employees alike.

For now, we recommend that employers reach out to any claimants who were under his care to minimize any interruption in treatment. We also recommend that employers with Dr. Sutton or his practice on their panel take an opportunity to reach out to his practice to discuss maintaining that relationship so panels can be updated in accordance with the law.
