Atlanta Workers’ Compensation Attorney – In a Workers’ Compensation Settlement, Should I Include Lost Wages Since I am Not Being Paid My Full Salary?

A:

In Georgia, the workers’ compensation insurance company will consider your weekly income benefits, that is temporary total disability or temporary partial disability benefits to be paid in the future, medical benefits to be paid in the future and permanent partial disability benefits.

In Georgia as of July of 2013, the maximum workers’ compensation weekly rate is $525.00. Whatever your weekly compensation rate is that is what the insurance company looks at when they consider settlement values. You can include your lost wages however this will not mean anything to the insurance company as they do not have to pay what you were making in salary only what they would be required to pay under the Georgia workers’ compensation system.
