Roswell Workers Compensation
Accidents are an inevitable part of life, but being injured while you are just trying to earn a living can be devastating. Georgia law requires employers to pay you workers compensation benefits if you are hurt or become sick because of your job. There are two questions about the action that caused your injury that you must answer to determine if it would be covered under current workers compensation statutes – is it job related and was it required or essential for your job. If you are the victim of a work injury, work related trauma, or a personal injury accident while at work, the amount of workers compensation benefits or accident compensation you receive can vary drastically depending on your employer’s workers compensation coverage and their reaction to your claim. A personal injury attorney may be needed to ensure that you receive all of the benefits that you are entitled to.
Common on the job injuries include but are not limited to:
- Repetitive motion injuries such as carpal tunnel
- Hearing loss due to equipment noise
- Illness due to exposure to dangerous substances
- Injuries sustained due to repetitive actions
- Slips and falls due to poor property maintenance
- Back injuries due to heavy lifting
- Injuries due to falls or falling objects
- Injuries from vehicle accidents, including delivery trucks and forklifts
- Burns and eye injuries due to chemical splashes
- Sick building syndrome
Your employer's insurance company is required to pay your medical bills and lost wages from workplace accidents and job-related injuries and usually, this is not a problem. However, knowing what else you may be entitled to and getting the full benefits you deserve is not automatic nor is it guaranteed. When your employer is slow to fulfill their obligation to you or offers a settlement that does not fully compensate you for your injuries, you owe it to yourself to consult a personal injury attorney with experience in Georgia workers compensation cases.
