What is Workers’ Compensation?

Atlanta Workers’ Compensation Lawyer

Workers’ CompensationAtlanta Workers' Compensation Lawyer is a state-required insurance program. It is known as workman’s compensation and workers’ compensation.

Employers pay the premiums. It does not cost employees anything.

Workers’ compensation takes care of employees who are injured on the job. It covers medical expenses and provides financial support while you are out of work. If you are killed on the job, it pays benefits to your surviving spouse and dependent children and step-children.

It benefits you and your employer. You benefit from having your medical costs covered. You get money to support yourself and your family while you are out of work. It benefits your employer by giving the company immunity from lawsuits if the business accepts liability and agrees to your claim.

Because workers’ compensation pays your medical bills, you do not have to rely on health insurance to cover the costs. You pay nothing, no deductibles with this plan. You can even receive money for travel expenses.

The Cochran Firm Atlanta is the premier law firm for Atlanta workers’ compensation.
