What are my rights if I am injured on the job?

Under the Georgia Workers' Compensation Act, if you are unable to work following a job injury, you are entitled to payment of two thirds of your weekly income (not to exceed $500 per week) for up to four hundred weeks. If your claim is designated as catastrophic, you could be entitled to receive income benefits for the remainder of your life.

Further, the Georgia Workers' Compensation Act requires your employer to pay for all reasonable and necessary medical expenses incurred as a result of your workplace injury.

If you need an attorney to assist with your work injury in Atlanta, or anywhere in Georgia, call the Law Office of Brian H. Sumrall.
