Atlanta, GA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/14/2017 -- In a write-up just released on his firm's website, Darwin Johnson explained some of the basic facts regarding workers' compensation in Georgia. Johnson is a workers' compensation lawyer in Atlanta who founded and heads up The Law Offices of Darwin Johnson.
Workers' compensation is understandably often a confusing subject," said Johnson. "I wanted to write a short introductory piece explaining what it is, how it works and how it can benefit injured workers."
According to the article, in Georgia, workers' compensation insurance must be carried by all companies with three or more employees, and is used to pay out injured workers to cover the costs associated with medical, rehabilitation and loss of income expenses. Since there are myriad situations in which workers' compensation can apply, the way those benefits are treated can vary.
"Most employers are honest about accepting responsibility when one of their employees makes a workers' compensation claim," said Johnson. "However, in the rare case that an employer denies his or her employee's claim, that person should get in touch with a qualified attorney."
The article notes that people often ask about catastrophic or deadly injuries. In Georgia, there are a variety of resources that help catastrophic workplace injury victims recover from their loss of ability to work in the positions they once held, such as new job skills training programs. Dependents of fatally injured accident victims are entitled to two-thirds of the victim's average weekly wages, up to $575 per week, for up to 350 weeks.
