How long do workers' compensation benefits last?

Under Georgia law, an injured worker may receive workers' compensation income benefits for up to 400 weeks from the accident date. However, those benefits will stop if the injured worker returns to work or if the authorized treating physician releases the injured worker to normal duty work. This only applies to non-catastrophic cases. In those claims, an injured worker can receive lifetime income benefits. If you have questions about how long you may be entitled to receive workers' comp benefits, call Atlanta work injury lawyer Brian H. Sumrall at (404) 857-3835 or visit
