Workplace Accident Attorney

The State of Georgia has a workers' compensation program designed to protect employees injured on the job. Georgia law requires employers to have an insurance policy for work related injuries, and the employer pays the premiumat no cost to the employee. If workers are injured on the job, the insurance coverage provides payments for medical care and wages lost due to the injury.

Have no fear! You cannot be fired for filing a workers' compensation or personal injury claim.

This program covers a wide range of injuries arising from accidents as well as job-related illnesses, including occupational illness or diseases occuring over a period of time as a result of exposure to hazardous substances, environmental conditions, or repetitive body motion.
