Is it possible to have a workers’ comp claim and a personal injury claim from one accident in Georgia?

Several of the cases my workers’ compensation law office in Atlanta is handling involve clients who have had injuries at work caused by another party’s negligence. Thus, they have a workers’ compensation claim and a personal injury lawsuit stemming from the same injury or injuries.

If you’ve had a workplace injury in metro Atlanta and think there could be a personal injury lawsuit and a workers’ comp claim, please contact my office, which handles workplace accidents in Georgia and partners with Atlanta personal injury lawyers.
