Your spouse’s claim just became a complicated claim. The reason being is when your spouse was hurt they were receiving treatment and income benefits. As soon as your spouse took on a new job, they lost the ability to obtain weekly checks. However the pain from their injuries became so bad that they eventually could not work the new job.
Likely you will run into an issue where the old employer/insurance company will blame the inability to work on the new employer/insurance company. So likely you will need to add both the old and the new employers. At this point, it would be recommended that you consult with a Georgia workers’ compensation attorney, this matter is complicated, however delaying will not help your injury or your potential benefits.
