Have you been injured while on the job in Georgia? If so, you might be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits for the injuries you sustained. While Georgia does not provide for complete payment of all lost wages under the Georgia Workers’ Compensation Act, it does among other things require 100% of the medical expenses to be paid on an injured worker’s behalf so long as they only seek treatment from specific workers’ compensation approved doctors and medical providers. A brief yet detailed overview of workers’ compensation in Georgia was recently posted by Finch McCranie, LLP on their Georgia Injury Lawyer Blog. If you have other questions not answered in that post feel free to contact one of our personal injury attorneys to get the specific answers you need now. As always, it is both free and confidential.
