Am I eligible for workers compensation?
If you are injured on the job, there is a good chance you are eligible to receive financial help through workers compensation. However, in Georgia, you must have a physical injury to be eligible to receive workers compensation.
Workers can also experience emotional trauma while on the job and may be eligible to receive psychiatric care.
Unsure if you have a workers compensation case?
You have 30 days to inform your employer that you have been injured on the job. Do not give any recorded statements or sign any documents from your employer or their insurance company.
