I would recommend you calling the telephone number 1 800 georgia and ask to speak to someone at the workers compensation department to see if you can get your question answered. Good Luck.

I still suggest getting a lawyer rather than navigating a very difficult system alone.

This answer posted on Avvo is for informational and educational purposes only. There is no attorney-client relationship created or formed and you should not rely on this as legal advice. The suggestion is made that if you wish to protect your rights, you consult with an attorney immediately.
Nobody can tell you that information until you tell us whether your claim is filed under Illinois or Georgia law. Where you were hurt is NOT dispositive. You may well have a choice. If you do, Illinois would be more favorable. Discuss this with an experienced WC attorney TODAY.

Even thoguh you were injured in Georiga, you might still be able to file an Illinois claim if you principal place of employment or contract or hire was in Illinois. I am 95% sure Illinois has much bettter benefits than Georgia so that might be something you need to investigate.
Your question however suggests that you have an attorney and filed case in Georgia so you will need to contract the the Georgia WC Board http://sbwc.georgia.gov/
If you need advice or assistance with an Illinois claim, we have 2 WC attorneys in our Springfield office wiht 20-25 years of experience that woudl be glad to help.
Best of Luck to you.
