Am I Eligible for Workers' Comp Benefits?

Ask an Experienced Atlanta Workers' Compensation Lawyer

Not all injured employees who file a claim are guaranteed benefits for their injuries. Workers' compensation is an insurance program that is intended to only compensate individuals who sustain work-related injuries. For employees who do qualify, they can recover restitution for lost wages and medical bills regardless of who was to blame for their work injuries.

Workers' Compensation Eligibility in Georgia

In order to qualify for workers' comp benefits, there are three requirements you must meet:

  1. The company or person you work for has three or more employees regularly in service
  2. You must be a legal employee of the person or company you work for
  3. The injury you are claiming must be work-related

Your injury does not have to actually occur at the workplace, so long as it is still work-related. If you are injured while on a business trip, running a business errand, or at a business conference, you may still be eligible to collect workers' comp benefits. If you are unsure whether you are eligible for workers' comp benefits, speak with an Atlanta workplace injury lawyer from our firm today.
