Unfortunately, some employers, despite their being required to carry workers’ compensation insurance in Georgia when they have more than two employees, do not have workers’ comp insurance or have let their policies lapse.
My Atlanta workers’ compensation law office has helped several clients this year who have faced this predicament. If you have been hurt at work in Georgia, and your boss or human resources director indicates the company does not have workers’ compensation insurance, you should still pursue a workers’ comp claim. There will likely be less money to spend on your indemnity and medical benefits, but pursuing the benefits you deserve is still worth the effort, so that you can get better and return to work.
Please feel free to contact my office to speak with a workers’ compensation attorney in Atlanta.
