You could be entitled to receive income benefits for your Atlanta, GA workers' compensation claim if you are still working.
You could be entitled to income benefits as a result of your workers' compensation claim even if you are working. Many people think that the fact that they have returned to work following a work injury bars their entitlement to income benefits. In Georgia, this is not the case. If you are working, but earning less money than you were earning before your accident, you are entitled to receive two thirds of the difference between your pre-injury and post-injury average weekly wage. These income benefits are called Temporary Partial Disability (TPD) benefits. The fact that you continue to work should also have no impact on your entitlement to workers' compensation medical benefits.
