Atlanta Workers’ Compensation Attorney – What Georgia Workers’ Compensation Injuries are Compensable?

If you are employed and not an independent contractor, and you are injured on the job in the course and scope of your employment (doing what you were hired to do), then your work injury is what is called a compensable work injury. You are covered the day you are hired as an employee.

There are of course several exceptions to every rule, so if you have been injured on the job and were not working the job you were hired to do, were on a break, lunch or otherwise, were going to or going from your place of work from your home, you may or may not have a workers’ compensation claim. The facts of every case are different so it is critical that you speak with a Georgia workers’ compensation attorney to discuss the specific facts that surround your claim.

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.
