How long do I have to file a workers' compensation claim?

In Georgia, an injured worker has a year from the date of accident or a year from the date of the last medical treatment paid for by the workers' comp carrier to file a WC-14 Notice of Claim or Hearing Request for work comp benefits. However, practically speaking, it is always the best practice to file a claim as soon as possible. It is also best to notify your supervisor as soon as you are injured on the job.
