Atlanta Workers’ Compensation Attorney – What is Workers’ Compensation in Georgia?

Workers’ compensation is a state program that provides medical care, income benefits, death benefits to employees and in some cases dependents of employees who have been injured in a compensable injury.

A compensable injury is one where the employee is injured on the job in the course and scope of his employment or hired doing what he was hired to do and has an employer who has three or more employees. There are of course many exceptions so these are just general guidelines for someone who is wondering if they have a workers’ compensation claim.

Employers are required by law to carry workers’ compensation insurance coverage if they have three or more employees. As stated earlier there are exceptions and there are employers who purchase workers’ compensation insurance coverage with less than three employees, however the law does not require them to do so.

If you have a workers’ compensation claim, you should reach out to a Chatham County, Georgia workers’ compensation attorney to find out what your legal rights are.

  • 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.
