Workers' Compensation laws were enacted to guarantee that injured employees are provided immediate medical care and income benefits after suffering an on-the-job injury without having to sue his or her employer. It is a no-fault system. Provisions in these laws also cover benefits allotted for dependents of employees who lost their lives due to work related accidents and, or illnesses. In the state of Georgia, if your employer has three or more employees, they are required to have workers' compensation insurance. If you are injured on the job, you are entitled to recover income benefits, and to have your medical care paid for by the employer's workers compensation insurer.
Filing a workers' compensation claim is similar to filing an insurance claim; it isn't a lawsuit against an employer, but rather a request for benefits. If you have been injured at work, THE FRISON FIRM can explain the complexities of workers' compensation and help you secure the maximum benefits to which you are entitled.
ISSUE: You can not rely on your employer, boss or co-workers to tell you the truth when you get hurt at work. Your job's workers compensation insurance company already has lawyers working to deny or minimize your claim for benefits. Even if you are seriously injured or disabled, there are time frames and statutes of limitations for filing a workers compensation case, there could be some technicality you haven't complied with or you may not know you are entitled to additional benefits. Don't rely on an insurance company to tell you what your rights and benefits are. They are focused on the bottom line making sure you are not compensated for your injuries and lost income to get the medical treatment you deserve. Don't make the mistake of trusting them to take care of you. Their duty is to the insurance company shareholders, not to a worker injured on the job.
