This is for information purposes it is ALWAYS recommended that you speak with a Georgia workers’ compensation attorney for specific answers to your specific claim.
Hello. My name is Ty Wilson. I'm a Georgia workers’ compensation attorney practicing law in the State of Georgia. And our video topic for today is:
What benefits am I entitled to if I’m injured on the job in Georgia?
If you’re injured on the job in Georgia, you’re entitled to medical care as it relates to your injuries. It’s important that you provide notice and once you’ve provided notice to your employer you want to ask them for medical care. There’s a separate topic on posted panels of physicians. But that will give you a list of doctors that you can choose from in order to receive the medical care you need for your work injuries.
Medical benefits are important because they will get you the medical care you need. If the medical provider that you’re seeing takes you out of work for more seven days, then you would also be entitled to what is called income benefits. If you are taken out of work completely, it would be temporary total disability benefits. If you’re put on light duty work restrictions and your employer has work for you, it would be temporary partial disability benefits. Those are the main benefits that are available to you as you initially get hurt. At the end of your claim once your doctor has likely released you to maximum medical improvement, you may also be entitled to what is called a permanent partial disability benefits. If there is a death, then there are death benefits and some of the death benefits include funeral expenses up to a certain statutory amount and income benefits for the surviving family members. These death benefits can be technical as to who is, in fact, entitled to them. So, I would highly recommend that you reach out to a Georgia workers’ compensation attorney to get the information you need so you understand what benefits you may or may not be entitled to.
