Helping Individuals Injured In Unsafe Working Conditions
Regardless of whether you work on a construction site or in an office, your employer has the obligation to make your workplace as safe for you and your coworkers as possible. If you are injured in an accident in the workplace in Georgia, you may be covered by the company’s workers’ compensation policy, but the truth of the matter is that worker’s comp distributions are not always enough to fully reimburse a severely injured employee for his or her losses. In many cases, the claim amounts are capped and have an end date, at which point the benefits will no longer be received.

Some of the more common types of workplace accidents and injuries include:
- Back injuries due to heavy lifting
- Slips and falls
- Machine accidents
