IF I RECEIVE A WORK RELATED INJURY, WHAT SHOULD I DO
Assuming the injury does require emergency treatment, you should notify your immediate supervisor as soon as possible. There are notice requirements under the Georgia Workers’ Compensation Act that the injured worker is required to meet in order to receive benefits.
WHAT BENEFITS ARE AVAILABLE TO INJURY WORKERS UNDER GEORGIA’S WORKERS COMPENSATION SYSTEM?
The Georgia Workers’ Compensation System affords lost wage benefits, medical benefits, and permanent partial disability benefits. In the event of a fatality, the Georgia Workers’ Compensation act also afford death benefits. Unlike personal injuries cases, payment for pain and suffering is not available.
If death results from an accident arising out of the course of employment, reasonable expenses of the employee’s burial are available up to $7,500.00. Where the deceased employee leaves a surviving spouse as the soul the dependent at the time of death, and there are no other dependents, the death benefits is available in amount to be paid weekly up to $220,000.00.
