Georgia’s workers comp program provides three core benefits medical treatment, lost wages and payment for any permanent disability.
Medical treatment and workers comp is quite expansive.
Not only does it include payment for any doctor visit or hospital visit,you’re also entitled to transportation
services or mileage reimbursement, prescription drug coverage and coverage for any assistive devices such as a wheelchair.
Lost wages and workers’ comp are owed once you miss more than one week of work.
Unfortunately, injured workers receive two thirds or 67% of their average weekly wage and not 100% of what you may be out.
And lastly, if an authorized doctor states that you have a permanent disability, you should also receive compensation for that.
