Workers Compensation is a form of insurance which provides wage replacement and medical benefits to employees
injured during their employment in exchange for mandatory relinquishment of the employee's right to sue his or her employer for the tort of negligence.
To be eligible for Workers Compensation, you must be a current employee. An employee is someone who works for another person or company under a contract of hire and receives a salary or hourly wage. You can be employed full-time or part-time to be eligible for Workers Compensation and be employed by more than one person or company.

Unless you are certain that your employer or supervisor witnessed your accident resulting in injury, you must notify them about your accident within 30 days. If good reason has prevented you from notifying your employer of your accident within 30 days, you must notify them in writing. This notice provision is a legal time deadline and falls under the Statute of limitations. If you fail to notify your employer of your accident during this time, you may be denied Workers Compensation benefits.
You must comply with the above notice provisions unless your employer knew about your injury. Under Georgia law a WC - 14 form, otherwise known as a Notice of Claim, must be filed with the Workers Compensation board either 1 year from the date of injury, 1 year from the date of the last authorized treatment paid for by your employer or its insurer or 2 years from the last payment of Workers Compensation income benefits.
Weekly payments may be made in place of wages, compensation for economic loss, reimbursement or payment of medical and like expenses, and benefits may be made payable to the dependents of workers killed during employment and general damages may be awarded for pain and suffering.
