How to File a Claim in Georgia

It is essential for you to understand what is required of you in filing a workers' comp claim in Georgia

The filing process in Georgia begins when you’re injured, and a notice is given to your employer of your injury. If you are injured in a work related accident, then you must notify your employer as soon as possible after the injury occurred, and within a maximum of thirty days from the date of the injury. From this point, you will have a total of one year to file a claim for compensatory damages.

After you have notified your employer of your injury, you will be provided forms for reporting and filing a claim. You will fill these forms out and give them to your supervisor who will also fill out certain forms, and then send the claim to a workers' compensation coordinator.

The coordinator will also fill out other forms and send the entire claim to both the insurance carrier for the company, and the Georgia department of labor. Finally, theinsurance carrier will launch an investigation of the causes and circumstances of your injury, and then either accept or deny your claim for damages. If you believe that you have been wrongfully denied your claim, then you can seek the assistance of a representative from our firm who will be able to help you from being wrongfully denied compensation.
