Atlanta Workers' Compensation Lawyer

Atlanta Accident LawyersWorkers’ compensation is essentially a mandatory insurance plan that provides compensation to employees who sustain injuries in the workplace. If you have been injured in an Atlanta workplace accident, you may be entitled to monetary compensation for your injuries. Workers' compensation plans pay a fixed amount of money to employees who are injured or disabled in the course of employment or to family members of employees who are killed on the job, thus eliminating the need to file suit against employers in a court of law. These laws also help to protect employers by limiting the amount of money that must be paid for on-the-job injuries. Many workers’ compensation laws also protect coworkers by limiting or eliminating coworker liability for injuries sustained in the workplace.

In general, the filing of a workers’ compensation claim for injuries that occur in the workplace precludes you from filing a civil suit against your employer. If your injury is caused by the reckless or intentional behavior of your employer, however, you may be allowed to file suit for compensatory damages, pain and suffering, mental anguish, and punitive damages in lieu of filing a workers’ compensation claim.
