If you have been injured performing a work-related duty or on the job,
you most likely will be eligible for workers' compensation benefits.
In Georgia, all employers with at least three or more workers must carry
workers' compensation insurance in the event of an accident. Coverage
begins immediately the moment you start work, and even part-time workers
also qualify for benefits. Workers' compensation is a no-fault insurance,
so regardless of whether it was your fault or the employer's fault,
you can still qualify.
Workers' compensation benefits in Georgia can cover expenses for:
- Doctor and hospital bills
- Physical therapy costs
- Prescription medication

How Are Benefits Calculated?
The benefits under workers' compensation are designed to help injured
workers get back on their feet and return to work. These benefits are
calculated by looking at your average weekly wages from 13 weeks before
your injuries. Any tips, meal allowances, and even year-end bonuses can
be included in this figure.
Workers' compensation claims can be complicated to navigate and are
governed by extensive rules, so it is important for you to seek help from
a workers' compensation lawyer if you are not sure how to proceed.
