Workers' compensation benefits may include free medical care, short-term income replacement benefits and long-term disability when an injury victim suffers either partial or total disability. Our Atlanta Workers' Compensation Lawyers have prepared this blog to provide general information on the rights and remedies of those injured in a workplace accident or by an occupational illness.
