Workplace Accidents Can Leave You With Many Types Of Losses
Accidents on the job can result in serious injuries and extended time off the job. If you were injured in a job-related accident — regardless of fault or circumstances — you may be entitled to medical and wage benefits under Georgia workers’ compensation. Additionally, if the negligence of a third party caused or contributed to your work accident, you might have grounds to a separate lawsuit against that party.
Skibiel Law in Jonesboro helps victims of workplace accidents recover as fully as possible through access to quality medical care and maximum compensation for their injuries and losses. We advocate for clients in Hapeville, Atlanta and the surrounding counties of Georgia.

|What Constitutes A “Workplace” Accident?
Compensable accidents do not always occur in the traditional workplace. You might be able to claim workers’ comp if you were injured in the company parking lot, in your own car, at a construction site or at a customer’s place of business. It’s not where you were injured, but whether the accident was work-related. Our attorneys are skilled and experienced at establishing that clients were “on duty” for purposes of workers’ compensation.
Third-Party Liability For Work Accidents
In most cases, employers must provide benefits even if workplace accidents stem from the worker’s own negligence or clumsiness. The trade-off is that workers cannot sue their employers or co-workers for negligence.
However, you may have a claim against other entities outside the chain of employment. Our lawyers are mindful of potential third-party claims beyond the limited benefits of workers’ comp. We can explore lawsuits for personal injury or wrongful death against manufacturers, subcontractors, property owners, utility companies, motorists or other parties.
