How To Appeal A Workman’s Compensation Decision In Georgia
Workers’ compensation allows employees who are injured on the job to receive financial and medical benefits while they recover.
Depending on the type of accident that occurs and the extent of an individual’s condition, it may take months or years before an injured employee is able to return to work.
During this time, medical and personal bills can accumulate substantially.
