Although you may be entitled to benefits for a work injury, many Workers' Compensation cases are denied by employers or their insurance companies. This may leave you to wonder what legal options are available. You may find yourself filing a Workers' Compensation lawsuit in Georgia with a lawyer who can guide you through the process.

As an employee, you can request a hearing if your claim has been denied.
A lawyer who handles work-related injury cases can help. However, you may find yourself in a position where you are suddenly without income.

If you are fired, laid-off or your work injury leaves you disabled, then you may be able to receive other benefits.
Unemployment benefits can be one source of help.

You may also be able to receive disability benefits.
However, this will depend on the particular circumstances surrounding your injury and if it is expected to last for at least 12 months. A lawyer can determine if these additional types of benefits may be available for you.
