Workers Compensation Injuries

Workplace injuries occur all over the state of Georgia on a daily basis.  For example, chefs and cooks slice off their fingers.  Pizza delivery drivers are injured in automobile accident while out on delivery.  Construction workers are knocked unconscious by falling debris.  These are only a few instances of work place injuries.  The list goes on and on.  In Georgia, employees are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits even if the employee is at fault for the injury.  As long as the employee was injured while working, workers’ compensation benefits should not be denied.  Contacting a knowledgeable workers’ compensation attorney is crucial in order to investigate the accident, review medical records, and strengthen the workers’ compensation claim.
