A workers' compensation settlement is when an injured worker trades his or her right to continue receiving medical or wage loss benefits in exchange for a lump-sum payment. It is an important decision, and one the injured worker should not make lightly.

Can I get workers' compensation if I am an independent contractor?

Independent contractors often find their worker's compensation claims denied on the basis that they are not employees. However, just because your employer has classified you as an independent contractor does not mean you are not eligible for workers' compensation.

Most Georgia workers are covered by the workers' compensation insurance fund.

On-the-job accident leads to death of concrete worker

One of the many safety hazards workers in Georgia are exposed to is falling from heights.

In addition to providing proper safety training, workers should be supplied with the necessary fall protection equipment when working at elevated positions.

Lawsuit follows workplace injuries when lift truck falls over

Construction workers in Georgia are likely aware of the dangers they are exposed to on a daily basis. They depend mainly on the company owners or other responsible parties to ensure safe workplace surroundings. Construction sites should be inspected before work commences, and all injury hazards should be addressed. A man who suffered severe workplace injuries in a construction accident in another state on April 30 has filed a lawsuit against two parties who he claims to be responsible for his injuries.
