If you are an injured worker, it is important to know and understand your right to medical treatment and compensation. The State of Georgia Workers’ Compensation Code provides that you are entitled to receive medical treatment and compensation for the time you are unable to work due to your injury. Often, work related injuries are extremely severe and result in serious physical impairments that prevent a worker from ever working again. If you have suffered permanent damage to your body, you are entitled to additional compensation. As of July 1, 2013 there have been changes to the Workers’ Compensation Code. Additionally, there are several deadlines to meet, forms to file with the State Board and other complex issues to address when you are involved in a workers’ compensation claim. Allow us to guide you through the process of claim and recovery.
It is important to take action in your Workers’ Compensation case before it is too late. Under the Georgia Workers’ Compensation laws, you must file a WC-14 form with the State Board of Workers’ Compensation within one year of your injury or if you are receiving income benefits, at least two years from the last payment of the benefit.
