Under Georgia law, claims made for worker’s compensation benefits should be rather straightforward. The idea is that when an employee of a company is injured while at work, in the course of working, insurance benefits are available to the injured worker. These benefits should cover medical expenses, lost wages, and other related claims. Unfortunately, making a claim is not always so straightforward. If you have questions about an injury you incurred while at work, consult an Atlanta worker’s compensation lawyer today.
Anytime a person begins working for a company, he or she brings an entire past history to the new job. This past includes past injuries, physical incapacities, and other issues that come with a worker, and which can become more complicated when an on-the-job injury occurs. In most cases, it should be a simple matter of compensation after a work related injury, but that is not always the case.
