[VIDEO] Can Independent Contractors Get Workers’ Compensation?

Workers’ Compensation Lawyers Atlanta

Hi, I’m Attorney Andre’ Ramsay, your workers compensation attorney. Now Georgia workers compensation insurance typically covers employees of employers, meaning you’re someone that works there on an everyday basis. You’re getting paid by the company. They tell you what to do and how to do it.

But what if you’re an independent contractor? Well sometimes we could still get those benefits that you deserve, simply just titling you as an independent contractor doesn’t relieve the employer from all liability they have if you’re injured at work.

There’s certain things that you need to consider when you’re an independent contractor.

  • Do you use your own tools or do they provide you with tools?
  • Do they tell you when to come into work or do you set your own schedule?
  • Do they tell you how and when to do your work or do you do that?

There’s so many factors to consider when you’re an independent contractor, that you need the services of an attorney to make sure that you’re protected. Don’t just listen to the employer when they tell you, “Well you’re an independent contractor. You’re not covered.” I’ve had many clients, specifically clients who work for construction companies who are working for a contractor or a subcontractor. I’ve been able to get those benefits for them because they knew they needed an attorney. They contacted an attorney and we got them the benefits that they need.

So don’t do this by yourself. The law is topsy and turvy when it comes to independent contractors and employers.

Please give me a call and let’s discuss it. I give a free consultation, so you won’t owe me any money just to discuss.

Again, I’m Andre’ Ramsay, the lawyer for the everyday worker.
