Understanding Workers’ Compensation in Georgia

Workers’ compensation in Georgia is designed to provide a safety net for employees who suffer job-related injuries or illnesses.

However, the process is not always as straightforward as it seems, and disputes are not uncommon.


Key Aspects of Georgia’s Workers’ Compensation Law

Coverage: Most businesses with three or more employees must carry workers’ compensation insurance.

Benefits: The system provides medical treatment, income benefits, and rehabilitation support.

No-Fault: Employees do not need to prove employer negligence to receive benefits.
