Workers Compensation is Not as Straight Forward as You Think
Unlike most personal injury claims, negligence and recklessness does not have to be proven in worker’s compensation case. In order to be covered under current worker’s compensation statutes in Georgia, there are two questions about the action that caused your injury that you must answer – was your injury job related and was the action that caused your injury required or essential for your job. If you are the victim of an illness, work injury, work related trauma, or a personal injury accident while at work, the amount of workers compensation benefits or accident compensation you receive can vary drastically depending on your employer’s workers compensation coverage and their reaction to your claim. Some of the injuries and illnesses that could entitle you to workers compensation benefits include, but are not limited to, the following conditions:
- Repetitive motion injuries such as carpal tunnel
- Hearing loss due to equipment noise
- Illness due to exposure to dangerous substances
- Injuries from falling objects•Back injuries due to heavy lifting
- Injuries from vehicle accidents, including delivery trucks and forklifts
- Burns and eye injuries due to chemical splashes
Ideally, your employer and their insurance company will cover all of your medical bills, pay you for missed work, and work with you to accommodate your injury in your job. After an on the job injury some of the workers compensation insurance benefits you could receive include the following:
- Temporary disability benefits
- Permanent disability benefits
- Supplemental job displacement benefits
- Vocational rehabilitation
Any resistance or denial of benefits that you deserve should prompt you to seek legal advice from a qualified personal injury attorney like Casey Stevens.
