Damages for pain and suffering in a workers' comp case.

In Georgia, unfortunately, there are no pain and suffering damages allowed against an employer in a workers' compensation claim. However, if a third party (other than a co-worker or representative of the employer) is liable for your injury, you may have a claim for personal injury against that third party. If that is the case, you may be able to recover damages for pain and suffering even though you were injured on the job.
