Understanding Worker’s Compensation in Georgia

Workers’ compensation provides financial and medical support to employees who suffer work-related injuries or illnesses. In Georgia, as in many states, this program is a mandatory, no-fault insurance scheme, meaning that employees are covered regardless of who is at fault for their injury. All employers in the state with three or more employees are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance.

This system benefits employees by ensuring they receive necessary care and financial support during recovery and protects employers from potential lawsuits. Our firm guides injured workers in Atlanta and Savannah through the claims process,  helping them access this vital employment safety net.

Eligibility for Workers' Compensation Benefit

Injured workers must meet several criteria to qualify for workers’ compensation benefits in Georgia:

  • The claimant must be an employee of the company. Independent contractors, volunteers, and other categories of workers are typically not covered.
  • The injury or illness must be work-related, occurring during employment.
  • The injury or illness must be reported to the employer within a specific time frame, typically within 30 days of the incident or discovery of the condition.
  • A medical evaluation by an authorized healthcare provider is usually required to confirm the injury or illness

Meeting these criteria is the first step for employees to access the workers’ compensation benefits. Our firm regularly collaborates with a respected network of medical and vocational experts to produce evidence and testimony validating workers’ claims. Let us do the heavy lifting so you can focus on recovering.

Types of Available Benefits
Workers' compensation in Georgia offers the following benefits:
Medical Benefits

Cover all medical expenses, including doctor’s exams, surgeries, rehabilitative care, physical therapy, prescription medications, and assistive devices (e.g. crutches, braces, orthotics).

Income Benefits

Replace up to two-thirds of your average weekly wages determined by a statutory formula and capped at a certain limit. Temporary wage benefits are paid until your doctor clears you to return to work.

Permanent Disability

Provide permanent income benefits if you cannot return to work, depending on the nature of your injury, age, occupation, and a doctor’s analysis of your lost work potential.

Vocational Retraining

Covers the costs of retraining and educational programs to help you learn new skills if you have suffered a permanent disability.

Death Benefits

Compensate surviving family members of a worker who suffers a fatal injury.

Common Challenges in Workers' Compensation Claims
Workers' compensation claims in Georgia can present several challenges:
  • Disputes over eligibility – The insurer may challenge whether your injury is work-related or if you meet the eligibility criteria.
  • Medical disputes – There may be conflicts over the type or extent of medical treatment required.
  • Benefit disputes – Issues may arise regarding the calculation or duration of benefits.
  • Return to work issues – Disputes can occur when there’s a disagreement about when or if an employee can return to work.

These challenges make having aggressive legal representation crucial. That’s where Parsons Law Group steps in.
