On-the-job injuries should lead to a workers' compensation claim

The premiums that are due for workers' compensation are the duty of the employer to pay. These are considered a regular business expense, so they can't be passed on to the employees. Since Georgia law requires almost all employers to carry this coverage, the vast majority of workers are covered. While some companies might try to convince workers to not make workers' compensation claims when they get injured, all employees have the right to file their claim after an on-the-job injury.

We know that you may be wary of filing a claim. You might worry that your employer is going to retaliate if you file. Any retaliation in response to a workers' compensation claim is illegal, so don't let your employer intimidate you. We can help you protect your rights from the initial filing through any appeals that might be necessary.

The exact benefits you are due depends on the facts of your case. When you receive documentation about what you will receive, make sure to read it closely. We can review it with you to ensure that you get everything to which you are entitled. If there are discrepancies, we can file an appeal.
