Atlanta Workers’ Compensation Attorney – I Was Hurt At Work And Upon Being Released From Care Employer Did Not Have Work, What Can I Do?

If you have been injured and received workers compensation benefits, once you have been released to full duty work, your employer can terminate you in Georgia.

The main reason for this is you are medically able (based upon the full duty medical release) to return to work.  The employer is not required to keep your job open for you.

Georgia is what is called an at-will state, meaning you can be terminated for a reason or terminated for no reason.

If however, you were released to light duty and your employer terminates you, you may qualify for weekly income benefits or checks.  The facts are very important on these types of claims.

Because these claims are very fact specific it is important to speak with a Georgia Workers Compensation Attorney.  It is recommended that you contact legal counsel immediately so that you can determine what your options are, don’t let your family be controlled by an insurance company that does not have your interest at heart.

  • 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.
