Frequently Asked Questions

I was terminated from my job after a work injury. Now my condition has worsened. What are my options?

Under Georgia Workers Compensation law, if an injured worker returns to work and is then terminated for reasons unrelated to the work injury, the employer usually will not have to reinstate the weekly benefit. Medical benefits would continue, however.

If the worker’s condition later changes, and he or she is no longer able to work, weekly benefits may be reinstated. It can often be a struggle to get the insurer to agree that the benefits should be recommenced, however, and it may require a hearing.

If your condition has changed, it is important to get advice from an experienced workers compensation attorney right away. Your attorney will review the medical records and consult with your doctor to determine if a request for reinstatement of benefits is called for.
