Our video topic for today is if I have a workers’ compensation claim, and my employer files for bankruptcy, will I still have a workers’ compensation claim? The short answer on this is maybe. It depends. If, is the employer self-insured where they’re handling their own workers’ compensation claims in-house or, if, do they have a secondary insurance company, third-party insurance company. If they do, the third-party insurance company will likely continue on with the claim regardless of the bankruptcy because of the policy and contract that they had with the employer. However, if the employer is self-insured, there is a distinct possibility that your claim can be delayed/damaged because of the bankruptcy. You need to speak with a Georgia workers’ compensation attorney immediately if there’s any specific details that you have regarding your case. We hope that you found this information helpful and we hope that you’ll come check out our other videos and if you have any questions, we hope that you’ll give us a call. Thank you.
