How Long Does Workers’ Comp Last in Georgia?

Typically, worker's comp can last for up to about 7.7 years from the date of the incident, but there are exceptions.

A typical workers’ compensation claim in the state of Georgia can last for up to 400 weeks, or approximately 7.7 years, starting from the date of the accident.

Of course, there are some exceptions. For example, in the case of paralysis, blindness, amputation, or other catastrophic injuries, Georgia workers’ comp benefits could be extended for even longer; for catastrophic injuries, the benefits may even last for the remainder of the injured worker’s life.

Additionally, certain medical treatments such as joint replacements or spinal column stimulators may qualify for lifetime maintenance, repair, revision etc.

The exact amount of time that your benefit lasts will depend on the unique facts of your case.
