Our topic for today is my employer cannot accommodate my light duty work restrictions and they’re telling me they’re gonna replace me soon if I can’t get back to work. What will happen to my workers’ compensation claim and my benefits? Well, if you’re terminated because of your workers’ compensation claim and injury, there is a possibility that you can continue to receive both medical benefits and income benefits. Regardless if you’re receiving income benefits or not, you still have a workers’ compensation claim so long as it’s been picked up by the employer and you will have what is called a medical only if you’re not receiving income benefits but you will still be entitled to receive medical care as it relates to your claim. I highly recommend that you speak with a Georgia workers’ compensation attorney if you’re in this scenario as there are a couple of tricks that, uh, that cannot be covered and it’s not the scope of this video per se. But, if you have any specific questions, we ask that you reach out to us or another Georgia workers’ compensation attorney and get your specific questions answered based on your facts. We hope that you found this helpful and we hope that you’ll come check out our other videos and if you have any questions, give us a call. Thank you.
