In Georgia, an employee cannot file a traditional lawsuit against an employer for a workers' compensation claim. However, an injured worker can bring a workers' compensation claim against his or her employer. Georgia workers' compensation laws require that an employer pay income benefits for missed time as well as medical treatment. Of course, not all employers meet their obligations to injured workers.
