Atlanta Workers’ Compensation Attorney – What Are My Options If I Was Hurt At Work?

If you were hurt at work while in the course and scope of your employment, and were not under the influence of alcohol, drugs or horse playing at the time of you were hurt, you typically have a workers’ compensation claim if you were hurt in Georgia.  If you hired in Georgia and were hurt in another state there is a possibility you can select to have a Georgia claim but more details would need to be discovered to see if this could happen.

Unfortunately, due to the exclusive remedy rule you only have a workers’ compensation claim against your employer.  If you were hurt by what is called a third party, you may also have a personal injury claim.  The third party will have to be unrelated to your employment, so co-workers and managers with your company are not considered third parties.

For more information you should speak with a Georgia workers’ compensation attorney so questions can be addressed for your specific situation, every case is different based upon many different factors.  The consultation is free.  Good luck.

Ty Wilson is a workers’ compensation attorney who handles claims throughout the State of Georgia and is dedicated to helping injured people and their families. Call his office today at 866-937-5454 to order his free report, Common Myths Associated with Georgia Workers’ Compensation Claims.

  • 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.
