What is the proper jurisdiction for a Workers' Compensation claim?

You can file a workers' compensation claim using Georgia as the jurisdiction if you were injured in Georgia.  You can also file a Georgia workers' compensation claim if you were in another state when you were injured if you are working for a Georgia company or if your contract of hire was completed in the State of Georgia.  Laws determining the proper jurisdiction for a work related injury can be complex.  In some instances, the injured worker may get to choose among two or more jurisdictions.  If you believe you have a Georgia workers' compensation claim but are unsure about jurisdiction, contact Atlanta workplace injury attorney Brian H.
