Atlanta Workers’ Compensation Attorney – I was driving a company vehicle and had an accident after returning back to the home office on my way home. Would I be covered by workman’s comp

In Georgia workers’ compensation coverage covers you when you are doing the job you were hired to do. If you were off the clock, the question becomes are you “on call” for your employer, meaning are you “always” on the clock or are you on the clock when the employer allows you to take a company vehicle home with you.

The likely answer is that you were not performing the job duties required of your position so you may have a very difficult time attempting to have workers’ compensation pay for your injuries.

That said there are several questions such as the “on call” status that may provide you coverage. In order to better determine you should speak directly with a Georgia workers’ compensation attorney and get specific advice for your claim.

  • 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.
