Atlanta Workers’ Compensation Lawyers
Helping Injured Workers across Tucker with All Their Needs
Workers’ compensation is available under Georgia law to most workers who have suffered a job-related injury or illness. The purpose of this type of compensation is to help you avoid the financial stress caused by an injury that prevents you from working. It also removes fault from your employer who then cannot be sued for negligence.
The success or failure of a workers’ compensation claim depends heavily on the proper documentation of your injuries as well as the skillful administration of your claim. At Buddoo and Associates, P.C., our Atlanta workers’ compensation attorneys are well-versed in the laws and procedures associated with these claims as well as the tactics that may be applied by employers and/or their insurance companies that can derail them. To ensure that your claim is handled properly and to avoid delays, complications, or denials, working with our knowledgeable attorneys is crucial.
Georgia Workers’ Compensation Claims
Depending on the type of injury or illness you suffered while on the job, compensation may cover:
- Medical treatment expenses
- Transportation to and from medical appointments
- Lost wages
- Death benefits for the families of workers who have died as a result of a workplace accident
Workers’ compensation benefits do not include damages for pain and suffering, punitive damages, or any other damages associated with civil personal injury claims because you are not engaging in a negligence-based lawsuit against the employer. These types of damages are only available should you file a claim against a third party who contributed to your work-related accident, such as in the case of a defective tool used on the job or another driver whose negligence injured you while you were driving for work-related purposes.
Common Claim Injuries
Most workers’ compensation claims result from slips and falls at work, construction and manufacturing accidents, and stress on joints and limbs due to strain from repeated activities. Sometimes, the actions of an employer create a condition that places a worker at risk of injury. In these cases, the employer may be held liable for damages over and above the workers’ compensation benefits.
All workplace injuries should be reported immediately to your employer, and the medical treatment you receive should be properly documented. Following the rules and regulations of workers’ compensation law is vital to ensuring that your claim has the best chance of success.
