Commonly Asked Workers' Compensation Questions and Answers
So, what is the Georgia's workers' compensation system? Is your injury covered? These are the most common questions we receive when discussing work-related injuries with clients.
Workers' compensation law requires most employers to provide employees with benefits following an injury that was sustained during the course of their employment. Employers carry insurance to compensate injured workers regardless of fault. However, the workers' compensation system is very complicated, especially for someone with little to no experience filing claims or appealing a denial of benefits.
