Georgia Workers Compensation law covers employees and workers who sustain injuries while on the job, including head injuries, neck and back injuries, Carpal tunnels syndrome, psychological injuries, burns, lacerations, amputations and more.
The GA accident insurance program generally requires employers to provide their employees with medical treatment, monetary benefits, and compensation for any sustained permanent disabilities as a result of the employee’s work-related injury or illness. Georgia Workers Comp is a no-fault program, which means that employees are entitled to benefits, regardless of who is at fault for the accident.
Sometimes, the employer or insurance company may attempt to pay the injured worker less than what he or she actually deserves. In some instances, a company may delay the entire workers’ compensation procedure, in hopes that the injured worker will give up their request for compensation. In other cases, the employer may fire the injured worker and lie about the conditions that may have caused the accident, or perhaps even deny the request for compensation outright. These are just some of the scenarios that make it essential to seek legal representation from a qualified Atlanta workers compensation lawyer.
A good Atlanta workplace accident lawyer will give you a greater chance of obtaining the benefits to which you are rightfully entitled to, rather than if you pursued the compensation claim on your own. An good Georgia work accident law firm can help you to gather the necessary records and evidence needed to prove your claim, and can help you file an appeal if necessary should your claim be denied.
