What sort of things does workers' compensation cover?

While residents of Northern Georgia probably are aware that this state, like the other states, has a workers' compensation system, they may not understand exactly what benefits this system offers injured employees or, in the case of a fatal workplace accident, a deceased employee's family.

Am I able to get workers' compensation for stress?

There is no doubt that work can get very stressful for many Georgia workers. In some cases, they work in jobs that are just naturally stressful, like medicine or law enforcement. In other cases, a worker might find himself or herself in a bad work environment or dealing with a really tough supervisor.

Workers' compensation and third-party liability claims

As previous posts on this blog have explained, Georgia's workers' compensation system exists to ensure that injured employees in Georgia get prompt access to compensation that will cover their medical bills and at least a portion of their lost income should they get hurt while on the job.

Overview of Georgia's workers' compensation system

Like all other states, Georgia has a workers' compensation system in place that is designed to make sure employees who get injured on the job get paid quickly for their medical expenses and also get the income they lose from being out of work reimbursed, at least partially. The system also covers all funeral expenses and lost wages when a worker dies in connection with a fatal workplace accident.
