What Is Workers' Compensation and What Benefits Are You Entitled To?
Workers’ compensation is a type of insurance that provides benefits for employees who sustain injuries as a direct result of their job activities. The goal of workers’ compensation insurance is to help protect the health and income of injured workers.
Any employee that has been injured while performing assigned duties during assigned work hours has a legal right to file a workers’ compensation claim. Workers’ compensation benefits include medical care and, in some cases, a portion of weekly income. In the event that an employee should die as a result of a work-related injury, the employee’s dependants may also be eligible for monetary benefits.
In general, you will be covered under Georgia Workers’ Compensation law if your employer has three or more employees, and you were injured performing work that arose out of or in the course of your employment. However, the system is complex, and obtaining benefits from your employer can often be challenging in regards to receipt of your maximum entitlement.
If you have been injured at work and are facing complications with receipt of benefits, knowledge and experience can make the difference for your future. At Sartain Law Offices, we know that an injury can change your life forever. Let our compassion and experience guide you through the storm. Contact our office for a consultation.
