Determining jurisdiction for a workers' compensation claim.

If an individual is injured on the job in Georgia, then Georgia should be the proper jurisdiction for that claim even if the injured worker's company is based in another state. Insurance companies frequently attempt to force injured workers into a jurisdiction which favors the employer and insurer. However, generally speaking, if an injury occurs in Georgia then the injured employee can choose Georgia as the jurisdiction for the workers' comp claim. If you have a question about choice of jurisdiction for a work injury, contact Atlanta workers' comp attorney Brian H. Sumrall at (404) 857-3835 or visit
