Atlanta Workers' Compensation Lawyers

Serving Injured Workers Over 35 Years

A work-related injury is a "good news-bad news" scenario. While any employee who suffers an injury on-the-job typically experiences physical challenges like excruciating pain and periods of disability, the Georgia workers' compensation system is designed, to provide a faster no-fault system for seeking financial relief and medical care. 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.

Our firm has over 35 years of experienced handling both personal injury claims and workers' compensation claims. Depending on the facts of your case, sometimes we are able to pursue a personal injury claim against a third party in addition to a workers' compensation claim. This dual strategy can provide often provide for a much greater financial recovery, because greater damages are available in a personal injury claim or lawsuit are often greater than the benefits offered through the workers' compensation system in Georgia. Additionally, there are additional categories of damages that are recoverable in a personal injury claim, such as money for pain and suffering.
