How much can I get in pain and suffering from my workers’ compensation claim in Georgia?

Unfortunately, if you are hurt at work in Atlanta and file a Georgia workers’ compensation claim, you cannot get pain and suffering. Workers’ comp in Georgia pays disability benefits to replace your income, medical benefits to give you access to health care, and any permanent impairment rating your treating doctor gives.

Incidentally, there are no punitive damages for workers’ compensation claimants in Georgia, either. In order to best maximize the benefits you can get in Georgia, consult an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer in Atlanta for assistance, and we’ll be glad to give you a free consultation.
