If you’ve been hurt on the job while working for a company in the state of Georgia, you may be entitled to certain rights.
Your medical treatment, lost earnings, and permanent impairment benefits may fall under the Georgia Workers’ Compensation Act. If a party other than your employer has caused or contributed to your injuries while you were on the job, negligence, occupational hazards, and other factors may play a role in your particular situation as well. Additionally, injuries caused by a third party may fall under a personal injury claim.
Consider contacting Ashenden and Associates, P.C. to help with your case. If you need to verify workers’ compensation insurance coverage, visit the state of Georgia’s office website.
