Georgia workers who have suffered workplace injuries may be concerned about the level of medical and income coverage they may be entitled to receive. They may find comfort in knowing that all medical expenses, including prescription payments and traveling expenses, are typically paid by their employer’s workers' compensation insurance carrier. Workers’ compensation regulations state that a worker may not be billed by medical providers and that they should not be responsible for any amounts due.
Recent winter storms have wreaked havoc on many parts of Georgia. The combination of snow and ice has brought some cities to a complete standstill. As crews work tirelessly across the state to restore power and clean up in the aftermath of these storms, state agencies are busy trying to ensure companies are operating in compliance with the current workers' compensation laws.
