Airline workers such as Delta employees, Southwest workers, and baggage handlers for both airlines are generally covered under workers’ compensation. If you have been injured on the job, you are entitled to immediate medical treatment but may need an airline workers’ compensation attorney to receive it. In Georgia, it is important to report the injury to your supervisor and accurately explain how the injury happened as a part of your job. There is a chance that your employer may require a drug screen. While the Employer has pre-selected a list of doctors you may treat with, you have the power to select your physician. If you are missing time from work, you may also be entitled to weekly income benefits as outlined in the workers’ compensation law. An airline workers’ compensation attorney can help you receive the benefits you are entitled to.

Our firm is equipped to handle airline clients who have worked as airplane mechanics, pilots, ground crews, hangar workers, shuttle bus drivers, ticketing clerks, and food service employees such as Atlanta Bread Company workers.
In Atlanta, many of our airline employees work at the Hartsfield – Jackson International Airport with many opportunities to be hurt on the job. AirServ provides cargo, cleaning, security, and ramp handling for the aviation industry. Our firm has experience in handling airline industry workers’ compensation claims against AirServ.
Case Study: In a recent AirServ case our firm handled, an employee was responsible for cleaning the airplane cabins. As she was being transported to the airplane, the truck was involved in an accident. As a result, she and two other employees were injured. The injuries involved pains in her back, neck and head. She also missed time from work. The injured employee came to us seeking help in obtaining both medical and indemnity (weekly) benefits.
