What is Workers’ Compensation in Georgia? How is it different than personal injury? Georgia workers’ compensation lawyer Ty Wilson explains in this short video.
A lot of people get confused as to if they have a workers’ compensation claim and/or a personal injury claim and a workers’ compensation claim is when you’re injured on the job, doing the job you were hired to do. Therefore if you’re hurt while you’re working you typically have what is known as a workers’ compensation claim. Workers’ compensation in Georgia is a no fault system meaning you do not have to prove negligence whereas a personal case you would have to prove negligence. Workers’ compensation is designed to provide you medical care and income benefits if you’re injured on the job in order to get you back to work and where you were prior to your work injury if at all possible.
