Statute of Limitations for Georgia workers' compensation claim.

For a new workers' comp claim, there is a one year Statute of Limitations in Georigia. However, there are certain events that can alter the Statute of Limitations for a Georgia workers' comp claim. For instance, if the workers' compensation carrier or employer pays for medical treatment, then the Statute of Limitations runs from one year of the last day of medical treatment provided by the employer or insurer. Further, if an injured individual continues to work after an accident and eventually stops working because then the injured worker could use the last date of work as a "fictional new accident date" to extend the Statute of Limitations. If you have any questions about these issues or any other workers' compensation questions, contact experienced Atlanta trial attorney Brian H. Sumrall at (404) 857-3835 or visit our website at
