Atlanta Workers' Compensation Attorneys
Have you sustained an on-the-job injury? Did your job make you sick? Did your loved one die because of a work-related illness or injury? If you or someone you love was hurt or killed at work, you may be entitled to receive workers' compensation benefits. These benefits are available regardless of injury causes and should provide medical bill payments, disability benefits, and other types of coverage in any cases where a work-related illness, injury or death occurred.
While workers' compensation laws should provide broad protection in case of any workplace incident, unfortunately it is common for insurers to deny claims that should be covered.

When Are You Entitled to Atlanta Workers' Compensation Benefits?
Employers must buy workers' comp coverage for virtually every employee. This insurance should cover illnesses, injuries, and death on-the-job. You may be entitled to benefits regardless of who was at fault or of how your injury happened. You may also be entitled to workers' compensation benefits even if your injuries occurred at a location other than your standard worksite.
Some of the many different kinds of workplace injuries and illnesses that can result in workers' receiving benefits or their families getting death benefits include:
- Injuries from slips, trips, and falls at work
- Repetitive stress injuries, including carpal tunnel or back injuries
- Workplace illnesses caused by asbestos exposure, lead exposure, mold exposure, or exposure to other toxins
- Injuries from exposure to electricity
- Injuries from being struck by objects or from striking objects
- Workplace car accidents
- Injuries caused by defective machinery
- Injuries due to faulty scaffolding
- Injuries caused by trench cave-ins
These are just a few of many different kinds of injuries that should entitle you to workers' compensation benefits.
Depending upon the cause of your injury, you may also be able to make third-party claims against non-employers to recover broader compensation including damages for pain and suffering. You should speak with an Atlanta workers' compensation lawyer at Parsons & Associates, P.C. to find out how you can maximize benefits after getting hurt on-the-job.
What Kinds of Atlanta Workers' Comp Benefits Are Available?
Workers compensation benefits should ensure that all of your medical care is covered after an injury on-the-job. You should receive payment of all medical bills and coverage for all medications, surgeries, therapies, and adaptive devices that you need to try to recover from your injuries.
When your injury necessitates missing work, you should get wage loss benefits so you do not lose out on income you should have earned. If you have suffered either a permanent or a temporary total or partial disability, disability income should also be available to you.
In the event that a tragic workplace death occurred, family members and dependents may also be entitled to benefits including death benefits to provide regular income as well as payment of funeral expenses.
Workers' comp insurers, unfortunately, may try to avoid paying out the full benefits that are due. Insurers sometimes deny legitimate claims, deny coverage for necessary medical care, or try to force workers back on-the-job before they are ready. Insurers and employers are not allowed to do this, nor can employers fire you for reporting a work injury and making a workers' comp claim.
If you are being deprived of any of the benefits that you deserve, you should contact an Atlanta workers' comp lawyer at Parsons & Associates, P.C. right away to get help.
