Recover More Quickly & Comfortably with Our Help
Injured workers should be able to get workers’ compensation benefits, so they can recover quickly and comfortably. Not only does this benefit the worker for obvious reasons, but it also benefits the employer who will get their full staff back sooner than later. However, in many cases, workers’ compensation insurance companies interfere with the process, delay or deny claims, and generally cause trouble for the injured worker.

Workers’ Compensation Benefits
Through workers’ compensation, you can collect a variety of benefits to help you recover from a job-related injury. Our goal as your Augusta workers’ compensation lawyers is to make sure that you get all the benefits owed to you without any stress or complication.
Benefits available through workers’ compensation usually includes:
- Medical treatments: 100% of the medical treatment costs related to your injury that you suffered while working should be covered. Even co-pays, deductibles, and prescription costs should be provided by the insurance company, not you.
- Wage replacement: When you are too injured to return to work for an extended period – such as seven days or longer – you can be eligible for wage replacement or disability benefits. Most injured workers are eligible to receive two-thirds of their average pre-injury wages each week until they can work again or become eligible for permanent disability benefits.
- Vocational retraining: If you cannot return to your previous job position, then workers’ compensation can provide vocational retraining opportunities, such as certifications to complete a new role or even an entirely new career path. For example, an injured construction worker could get retraining to hold gainful employment in an office setting that does not involve manual labor.
Who is Eligible for Workers’ Compensation in Georgia?
In Georgia, most employers must purchase workers’ compensation insurance if they have three or more employees, including part-time or seasonal workers. For this reason, most people who work in the state do have workers’ compensation coverage or they should. Although, independent contractors are usually not guaranteed workers’ comp from their employers. If you are a contracted worker and not technically an employee, then you might not be covered.
Importantly, workers’ compensation applies to work-related accidents. The location of the accident is not necessarily important as long as you were completing a job-related duty or a task assigned to you by your employer or supervisor. Also, it does not cover non-accidental injuries, such as if you intentionally acted recklessly at work and broke safety protocols when you were hurt.
