How Can Filing a Claim Help Me?
workers’ compensation benefits aide employees while injured on the job, they are usually not sufficient
enough to fully compensate injured workers for all damages and medical
bills sustained as a result of their work-related accident.
Under Georgia law, employees cannot sue their employers for damages sustained
as a result of a work-related accident. In order to receive reasonable
compensation for their injuries, workers must initiate lawsuits against
parties other than their employer, such as equipment manufacturers, who

Damages in addition to workers’ compensation benefits that can be
recovered in these lawsuits include pain and suffering, additional lost
wages, medical benefits and loss of services for the spouse.
