This is a tricky question, in Georgia the employer/insurer have a responsibility to provide you medical care and arguably transportation to your medical care.
However, because we live in a free society you could theoretically live hundreds of miles from your work. Generally speaking, the employer/insurer is not required to get you to work, that is your responsibility.
There are certain exceptions such as if the employer request you go to a different location that is hundreds of miles away due t0 your work injury, that would be a different scenario. Without knowing additional facts it would be difficult to specifically respond to your particular set of details.
If you have specific questions you should contact an Georgia workers compensation lawyer to specifically address your issues.
Be informed. Be aware. Be prepared.
