Our Experienced Workers’ Compensation Lawyers Fight for your Rights.

Workers’ compensation is an insurance program that guarantees payment of medical benefits and a portion of weekly earnings to employees who are injured while working. Workers’ compensation is a no-fault insurance system. It doesn’t matter whether you were responsible for the accident that caused your injuries. If you were hurt on the job, you are covered.

Every employer in Georgia that has three or more employees is required to provide workers’ compensation insurance for its workers.

Third Party Claims

If someone other than your employer or co-workers caused your injuries, you may be able to recover financial compensation from that third party by filing a personal injury lawsuit. These so-called third party claims are generally more financially beneficial to injury victims. Third party claims allow injured people to recover compensation for pain and suffering as well as for medical expenses and lost wages. Workers’ compensation does not compensate injured workers for pain and suffering caused by an injury.

At the law office of J. Franklin Burns, P.C., we help our clients obtain all the benefits they are entitled to receive under Georgia’s workers’ compensation program. We also carefully analyze the circumstances of their workplace injury to determine whether we can file a third-party claim against someone other than the employer.
