Atlanta Workers’ Compensation Attorney – Do I keep my health insurance if I am injured on the job?

In Georgia, it is important to know that often times your employer takes money out of your paychecks to pay either for all or part of the employer provided health insurance. Because money is taken out of your personal paycheck, if you stop getting paid through your employer you will not have any money being paid to the employer’s health insurance.

Therefore, if you are injured on the job and unable to work due to your injury, you will have health insurance but likely you will probably receive a bill from your employer.

Often times, if you are receiving workers compensation benefits, you will be making substantially less than you were when you were employed.

If you are injured on the job this is something to consider so that your family does not lose health care coverage.

Be informed. Be aware. Be prepared.

  • Awesome Lawyer and very helpful!

  • Mr. Wilson is truly a very good person who cares about people. I understand he selected this career but I do know he makes many sacrifices to help he’s clients. I am very grateful to have had him as my attorney and if I ever have to use one again (hopefully not) it will be Mr. Wilson.

  • He worked with me. He told me everything. He called me. He gave me all the information.

  • He will be my family lawyer from now until the end because I can trust him.

  • He's just a great guy.

  • He always calls you right back and even if it's on the weekend - he's going to call you back.
