People get hurt at work every day in Georgia.

Here’s a more in depth look at what these benefits do for you:
Wage Benefits are determined by how much you earned in the 13 weeks prior to your injury. And this amount will vary from person to person depending on your pay and work situation.
Medical Treatment must be provided by the insurance company to help diagnose and help treat the injury you sustained at work.
And, if you’re injuries are permanent, you are entitled to additional benefits through permanent or partial disability.
If you are tired of:

- Late weekly checks – or no workers’ compensation checks at all . . .
- Delays in getting the medical treatment you need . . .
Don’t delay in filing your workers’ compensation claim.
