The different types of workers' compensation benefits

As an injured worker in Georgia, it is possible that you are worried about the financial implications of the accident you were involved in. If you are not able to work for some time after the accident, you will not be able to earn your wages, and as a result you may find it difficult to pay your rent or look after your family.

This is why it is crucial that you understand whether you are entitled to workers' compensation as a result of your injury. Workers' compensation is a type of insurance that helps injured workers with negative financial effects in the aftermath of a work-related accident. There are three different types of workers' compensation that might be available depending on the circumstances.

Medical compensation

The most common type of compensation is the coverage of any medical expenses that resulted from the accident. Workers' compensation will cover any necessary medical treatment that is related to the injury.

Disability compensation

If you have to stop working in order to recover, you will be regarded as temporarily disabled. This means that you will have the right to claim back a certain percentage of the wages that you lost during this time so that you can continue to support yourself and your family.


You may not be able to work in the same profession after your injury. Workers' compensation can help pay for rehabilitative services that can help you to gain new skills so that you can move on to a different career.

If you are struggling to navigate workers' compensation law after your accident, it is important to consider taking action so that you are supported.
