Athens / Hartwell Workers' Compensation Attorneys Serving Northeast Georgia

About Georgia Workers' Compensation Benefits

In Georgia, workers' compensation is an insurance program that provides payment of medical treatment and a portion of weekly earnings to employees who are injured while working.

Workers' compensation is a "no-fault" system. This means it does not matter if the injured employee was the cause of the injuries.
