Atlanta Workers’ Compensation Attorney – I Was Injured On The Job, Filed Unemployment Until Workers’ Comp Started Paying 3 Months Later, What Am I Entitled Too?

I was injured on the job.  After I became injured workers’ compensation delayed paying me for three months.  During that time I needed money to pay my bills so I filed for unemployment benefits and got them.  Once I started getting workers’ compensation benefits I was told workers’ compensation does not have pay the full amount and they get credit for the money I was paid by unemployment, is that correct?

Workers’ compensation will receive credit from any source of income you have, so yes they will get credit for the unemployment benefits you receive and then they will pay you the difference.  If your unemployment runs out or is stopped you should notify workers’ compensation immediately so you can obtain the full amount of your benefits promptly.

  • 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.
