How do I file a workers' compensation claim in Georgia?
You have 30 days from the date of the injury to file a "notice of injury" with your manager or employer. The sooner you begin this process the better. Then, file a WC-14 form with the Georgia State Board of Workers' Compensation.
Throughout each step of this process, an Atlanta workers' compensation lawyer can be vastly beneficial and will likely significantly increase your chance of obtaining the full compensation that you deserve. Unfortunately, filing a claim on your own can lead to numerous mistakes. Our team at Schneider Hammers can help you fill out all the paperwork and provide the necessary documentation in a timely manner.
