Workers' Compensation Benefits
Learn More with Our Cobb County Workers' Compensation Attorneys
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
- Vocational rehabilitation
- Medical rehabilitation
- Death benefits if a family member was killed

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.
