How do I know if my employer has workers’ comp benefits?
Generally, the state of Georgia requires that certain employers carry workers’ compensation insurance. According to Georgia law, an employer must have a workers’ comp plan if:
- They employ more than three people
- The company is incorporated or an LLC
It is important to remember that part-time employees, and even in some cases independent contractors, could be eligible for workers’ compensation as well.

What does a ‘no fault’ system mean?
The Georgia workers’ comp system is designed to protect both employees and employers. It offers benefits such as medical care and other compensation to workers injured on-the-job, and also shields employers from liability. This means, if you were hurt on the job, you generally cannot directly sue your employer.
Of course, there are always exceptions depending on the unique circumstances of your case. Discussing your situation with a Georgia workers’ comp attorney will give you a path forward.
What do workers’ comp benefits cover?
Generally in Georgia, workers’ comp benefits will cover medical care, a portion of lost wages and other benefits. The workers’ compensation system is extremely detailed and complex, and a dedicated Montlick workers’ comp attorney can discuss your specific situation with you and advise you on your options.
In some cases, additional money can be recovered if there were parties other than your employer responsible for your injuries. In these cases, you may have a viable personal injury claim in addition to your workers’ comp claim. For example, if a piece of faulty machinery was the cause of your accident, you could have a claim against the machinery’s manufacturer. In this situation, you could recover additional money in the form of damages, including compensation for pain and suffering, medical expenses, milage reimbursement for doctor visits, lost wages, and more.
Employees who have suffered severe and permanent injuries may additionally be able to obtain disability benefits. These ongoing benefits can compensate injured workers for their inability to return to their previous position.
