Helping Georgia Victims of Workplace Injury

Workplace injuries can happen on any job and in any industry. Some industries are more prone to on-the-job injuries due to the dangers inherent in them, such as mining, oil and natural gas production, and construction sites. Employees in any situation, however, from warehouse workers to office workers can find themselves temporarily or even permanently disabled through occupational diseases or accidents. When such a situation arises, who can you turn to so that your best interests are secured?

The insurance company and your employer may have little real interest in seeing that you get every dollar in workers' compensation that you deserve. At Parsons Law Group, our workers' compensation lawyers have seen this firsthand. We know how difficult it can be to obtain the benefits you are entitled to under law. That is why we are totally committed to helping you recover those benefits so that you can heal and your family can move forward without financial jeopardy.

Benefits Under Georgia Workers' Compensation Law

Workers' compensation benefits include:

  • Medical care, such as doctors' visits, medical tests, physical therapy, prescription drugs, medical treatments, and hospitalization
  • Temporary total disability or temporary partial disability benefits
  • Impairment benefits
  • Permanent total disability benefits
  • Death benefits

Per workers' compensation law, you may be eligible for up to 400 weeks of temporary disability benefits. If you are left permanently unable to work, you may be eligible for permanent total disability benefits. On-the-job injuries can include injuries from accidents or from repetitive motion trauma as well as illnesses caused by the nature of your work or work environment. You have only 30 days to report your injury to your employer and a two-year period in which to file your claim.

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
  • 321

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.
