Atlanta Workers’ Compensation Attorney – What happens if the workers’ compensation over pays you?

If the workers’ compensation insurance company overpays or double pays you they will likely take credit as soon as they determine that they have over paid you. If you are not receiving weekly benefit checks and they over pay you on a mileage or a one time lump sum check you can rest assured they will come knocking on your door to collect the over payment.

In Georgia, the insurance company can file with the State Board of Workers’ Compensation to collect over payment by reducing your weekly check amount if you are receiving weekly checks, or they can seek repayment. Ultimately if you have been over paid you will need to pay them back and could be held criminally liable in worse case scenarios.

Be informed. Be aware. Be prepared.

  • 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.
