What Benefits Am I Entitled To?
Many injured workers face a difficult question after suffering a serious work injury: What benefits am I entitled to receive? Under Georgia workers’ compensation laws, injured workers are entitled to benefits for:
- Medical bills arising from work-related injuries, including surgeries, doctor visits, hospitalization and medication
- Temporary total disability benefits, if your injury causes you to miss work for more than 7 days
- Permanent disability benefits if your injury is catastrophic and leaves you unable to perform your job duties
- Vocational rehabilitation benefits, to help you transition to a new type of work, if necessary
While Georgia workers’ compensation law provides strong protections for injured workers, this does not mean benefits are easy to obtain. Insurance companies do not thrive on freely paying the full value of a claim. Our law firm is here to help you overcome any obstacles that are placed between you and the financial compensation you need and deserve.
