In Georgia, an injured worker is not entitled to punitive damages against his or her Employer following a work injury. Generally speaking, there are three different type of workers' compensation benefits. You could be entitled to TTD benefits, PPD benefits, and medical benefits. If your injury was caused by a third party, however, you may be able to recover punitive damages against that third party arising out of the same incident.
