Workers who are injured while on the job in Georgia are often eligible for workers compensation benefits either temporarily or permanently, depending on the injury. State and federal workers’ compensation plans are intended to provide employees with the support they need after an injury on the job. This includes such things as payments for medical expenses and payments to make up for the loss of income when the worker cannot return to work for a period of time or permanently.
Although this sounds like it should all be very simple, unfortunately it isn’t simple. That is because often the benefits that are provided are not enough to make the injured worker whole. Also insurance companies that cover injured workers through their employment often want to diminish the severity or the length of time the injured worker has to recover in order to pay less for the injury.
In addition to ensuring that the insurance company and their doctors provide the appropriate support to injured workers, it is also possible to file what are called third-party negligence claims when someone other than the employer is at fault for the injury.
The only way to ensure that a worker is fully protected after an injury while on the job, is to retain an experienced lawyer as soon as possible.
