[VIDEO] How Long Do You File A Workers’ Compensation Claim in Georgia?

Hi, I’m Attorney Andre’ Ramsay. Your worker’s compensation attorney, now how long do you have to file a claim within the State of Georgia?

State of Georgia allows you one year from the date of injury to file a claim.tweet

If the claim is being controverted, meaning if the employer’s not providing any income or medical benefits, you’ve got the one year from your date of injury.

Now, if the employer and the insurance company is actually providing you medical benefits only, then you have one year from the last date of medical treatment in order to file a claim in the State of Georgia. If the employer or the insurer is providing you medical benefits, at least initially, then you have two years from the last date of any income benefits proceed in order to file a claim with the State of Georgia.

Now don’t be confused. You can actually file a claim with your insurance company and not file a claim with the State of Georgia. Many injured workers believe simply because they file a claim with the insurance company, then that’s it. That is not final end all be all. You need to also file a claim with the State of Georgia to inform the State of Georgia that you’ve been hurt and that you’re receiving income benefits or that you need those income benefits that the employer has denied you.

All of these sounds like a lot of information and it is. That’s why it’s all over the internet. But more importantly, that’s why you need us. Let us help you. Don’t do this alone.

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