Georgia workers’ compensation is a no-fault system. However, if you did not seek treatment and are now only seeking treatment to harass the employer, then you should not pursue your claim. However, if you are truly injured you must get to a medical doctor and get checked out. You should go to your former employer and request the list of doctors. If you do not request the list of doctors (and they have a valid panel), you may be responsible for paying for your medical care.
If they do not provide you any information then you may need to get checked out by a doctor, however you should realize you maybe responsible for that office visit.
Contacting a Georgia workers’ compensation attorney will be critical as likely the employer will need to be deposed along with any other potential witnesses who can support your claim of being bullied.
