If you suffer an injury while you are doing your job, you may be entitled to receive work injury benefits. You’ll need to take certain steps after the injury in order to make certain that you protect your rights to get benefits. Since many employees are not allowed to file a lawsuit against an employer under Georgia’s workers’ compensation rules, it is important that you understand the process of getting work injury benefits so you will be able to recover the money you need to avoid serious financial loss when an injury occurs.
An Atlanta work injury lawyer can help you to take the right steps after getting hurt on-the-job so you can obtain the benefits that the law says you’re entitled to if you get hurt while performing work tasks.
If you can make a successful workers’ compensation claim, you should be entitled to get your medical bills paid and should be entitled to get disability income though workers’ comp as well. Contact an attorney to guide you though the process of what you need to do after getting hurt.
