Under Georgia law there are special conditions that must be met prior to the claimant being able to obtain an advance approved by the Georgia State Board of Workers Compensation.
If the claim is a medical only there may be an issue with obtaining an advance via the State Board of Workers compensation.
Even when you have a compensable claim or a claim in which you are receiving benefits i.e. weekly checks and medical care, you are not guaranteed to receive an advance on your claim. You must still meet specific conditions which are controlled by statutory law.
If you are a claimant and are receiving income benefits and medical care due to a Georgia injury you are in the best position to receive an advance on your claim.
Contact a Georgia workers compensation attorney for more specifics on if you qualify currently under Georgia law.
Be informed. Be aware. Be prepared.
