Injured at Work - What to Do If You've Been Hurt on the Job

Updated: Aug 31

Under Georgia Workers’ Compensation Law an employer is responsible for injuries sustained by an employee if the injuries arise out of and occur within the scope of employment. An employee is not required to prove the employer caused the accident, only that the employee was at work, and engaged in his/her normal duties when the injury occurred.

If you are injured on the job:

1.) Immediately report the injury to your supervisor

2.) Request the “Panel of Physicians” from your employer.

Remember, the employer shall be responsible for all medical expenses, missed time at work, and permanent disability ratings that result from the work-related injury.

Often insurance companies will “bully” a claimant during a workers’ compensation case. When this begins to happen, it is time to contact an attorney.
