Georgia Workers’ Compensation Laws
Workers’ compensation applies to any injury you suffer in the workplace, including those caused by repetitive stress. Examples of common workplace injuries include back injuries, sprains, carpal tunnel, turns, hearing loss, torn ligaments, and neck injuries.
The benefits to which you are entitled may include:
- Wage benefits (a portion of your wage)
- Medical treatment
- Mileage for traveling to your medical visits
- Vocational rehabilitation
In the case where a worker has lost his or her life, their spouse and other dependents may receive death benefits.
To be eligible for benefits, you must notify your employer and submit a formal claim within a specific period of time. Waiting too long may cause your claim to be denied.
