Atlanta Workers’ Compensation Attorneys
A Discussion of Income Benefits & Medical Treatment
In the state of Georgia, being entitled to income benefits depend on the specific situation, such as how you were injured, when, you were injured, and how much it may take to treat your injuries.
These benefits can help you and your family when you:
- Are forced to take time off of work
- Cannot earn as much as you did previously due to your injury
- Have suffered permanent, debilitating damage
When you are facing any of the above, contact Cummings & Middlebrooks, LLC in Atlanta for experienced representation to help you.
Assistance in Getting Temporary or Permanent Disability
Temporary total disability (TTD) and temporary partial disability (TPD) benefits can be sought when you are unable to work due to your injuries or cannot make earn as much as you did before your accident. If awarded, TTD and TPD benefits can pay you two-thirds of your previous wages or weekly income of $500 per week for TTD and $334 per week for TPD.
In contrast, permanent partial disability (PPD), is paid for the complete lack of function that you have sustained after an on-the-job injury, as determined by the American Medical Association. Calculating the amount of PPD you may be owed is complicated, but our Atlanta workers’ compensation attorneys have the experience and skill to help you fight for the full amount that is owed to you.
After an accident it is important that you seek immediate medical attention so your injuries do not get worse. Regardless of the cost, this can save you incredibly stress in the future. Should your bills start piling up, you may be entitled to compensation or other medical benefits to help.
Our workers’ compensation attorneys in Atlanta encourage our clients to see a doctor or visit an occupational clinic immediately after an accident and injury, and to make sure the doctor they see takes their injuries seriously and thoroughly documents the extent of the damage.
