Georgia workers' compensation pain and suffering.

Workers' compensation claimants experience a tremendous amout of pain and suffering during the course of their claim. Unfortunately, the Georgia Workers' Compensation Act does not allow for reimbursement for pain and suffering. Further, when an individual is injured on the job and the employer is subject to the Workers' Compensation Act, the workers' compensation system is that injured worker's only remedy. Therefore, in a Georgia workers' compensation claim, an injured worker will never be reimbursed for pain and sufferering. However, that individual is potentially entitled to income benefits for up to 400 weeks, and lifetime medical treatment relating to the job injury. If you have been injured on the job, contact Atlanta workers' compensation attorney Brian H. Sumrall at (404) 857-3835, or visit
