You Have Rights as an Injured Employee. Contact Our Firm Today At (404) 857-3835.

Injured on the job and wondering if you qualify for workers' compensation benefits? Workers' compensation is a delicate process. It should only be pursued after you have educated yourself, understand what steps need to be taken, and know what rules need to be followed.

Employers and insurance companies are very strict about who is eligible to receive workers' compensation. They could also charge you with workers' compensation fraud if they believe you are not following regulations. If you have suffered an injury after a workplace accident, learn about Georgia's workers' comp regulations before filing a claim.

Basic Workers' Compensation Eligibility Guidelines

There are a few basic circumstances that could help you determine whether or not you qualify for workers' compensation.

Your accident, illness, or injury must not have been caused under any of the following circumstances:

  • By willful misconduct or self-infliction
  • By drug or alcohol usage
  • By roughhousing or fighting on the job
  • Before or after employment with the employer against which you are filing the workers' comp claim

However, you may be able to rightfully request compensation if your accident, illness, or injury was caused by any of the following:

  • Willful or serious misconduct on behalf of your employer
  • Repetitive movement relating to your job
  • Unsafe work conditions
  • Unintentional actions on your part

Essentially, if your illness or injury was a result of work-related circumstances outside of your intent or control, you have the right to request compensation. Your employer may still be reluctant to offer you maximum compensation, though, so make sure you are well-equipped to fight for your rights as an injured worker by hiring an Atlanta workers' compensation lawyer right away.
