GEORGIA WORKERS’ COMPENSATION
LAW FAQ’s

While obviously, no one wants to consider the worst happening while at work, the chances of sustaining a workplace injury, while not necessarily a likely or common occurrence, is still something that absolutely needs to be taken into consideration. If you are to sustain a serious injury at work and require time off, the thought of going for an extended period with no pay can be crippling. After all, there are bills that need to be paid and a family that needs to be supported.

If I miss work because of my injury, will I get my regular paycheck?

You may receive weekly indemnity (income) benefits if you miss seven (7) days of work because of an occupational accident. Generally, the injured worker receives two-thirds (2/3) of his or her average weekly wage up to the statutory limit, up to $675.00 if the accident occurred on or after July 1, 2019. For more information or for accidents occurring prior to July 1, 2019, give our office a call today.

I’ve been injured at work, am I covered under Georgia workers’ compensation law?

Generally, Georgia workers’ compensation will cover workers who were injured in the course and scope of their employment.

Who pays for my medical bills after the injury?

Any medical or hospital expenses that have to be undertaken in order to diagnose and treat your injury are covered by workers’ compensation. You are not responsible for the medical bills that arise as a result of your injury. You may need to pay medical bills soon after your accident, however, before workers’ comp benefits begin, the workers’ compensation benefits will still cover these bills. After your accident, it’s important to keep copies of medical bills and any expenses you need to pay out of pocket. These bills will be sent to the workers’ compensation insurance company.

Can I be fired while I’m on workers’ compensation benefits?

Unfortunately, yes. Georgia is an at-will state. However, if you have an employment contract or have been discriminated against because of your disability, you may have legal recourse outside of workers’ compensation.

Are workers’ compensation benefits taxable in Georgia?

Many injured workers in Georgia ask us if their workers’ compensation benefits are taxable. Fortunately, they are not normally considered taxable income at the state or federal level.
