WORKERS' COMPENSATION

In Georgia, you must have a physical injury to be eligible for workers' compensation. If you have been hurt on the job you are entitled to medical treatment, physical therapy, medication, necessary travel expenses, or even temporary disability benefit if your doctor should dismiss you from work for the statutory amount of time. The time to file your case is limited and must be within one year from the date of the accident. If you have received medical treatment it is one year from the last time you received medical treatment paid for by the worker's compensation carrier and it is two years from the date you received a check for worker's compensation. Remember, you have only 30 days to report your injury to your employer. Call us today to let us help you navigate through this complicated system or if you should have any questions regarding your case.
