Workers’ Compensation

Workers’ Compensation Representation for Work Place Accidents & Injuries 
We help workers and their families recover benefits after workplace accidents and job related injuries. The workers’ compensation system provides payment of medical benefits and weekly earnings to employees who are injured on the job. Workers compensation insurance is mandatory for employers doing business in Georgia, unless exempted due to size of the business.

You do not need to prove negligence to recover, Workers’ compensation is a no-fault system. If you were hurt on the job then you are covered.  However, insurance companies handle these claims very aggressively with an eye on paying as little as possible. An experienced workers compensation lawyer forces the insurance company to pay for the medical treatment needed and pay the appropriate wage benefits to give you time to recover from your injury. At the Persons Firm we partner with lawyers throughout the State that specialize in Workers’ Compensation law to maximize your recovery.

In Georgia, worker’s compensation is the sole remedy an employee can pursue against an employer. If an employee is injured on the job due to his employer's negligence, the employee cannot pursue a lawsuit or claim against their employer. However, a claim can be asserted against third parties responsible for the injuries. We will evaluate all potential claims to maximize your recovery.
