Atlanta Workers Compensation Lawyer and Your Workers Comp Claim

Written by lisaspitzer. Posted in Atlanta Workers Compensation Lawyer, Georgia, Injured Worker News

Our Atlanta Workers Compensation lawyers are helping injured workers with their workers compensation claims

 There is a pending house  bill that effect your workers compensation claim and your Georgia workers compensation benefits.
 

The Georgia Legislature is looking at a new workers compensation  law that would make changes to the benefits that injured workers receive in the Greater Atlanta area.

Some of these proposed changes will be beneficial to injured workers. The bill will:

  • raise the cap on weekly income benefits  from $500.00 to $525.00.
  • require insurance companies to reimburse injured workers for mileage expenses within 15 days of being notified

The bad news is this House Bill 154 will decrease the time period for your medical treatment.

Any  injury is not considered to be "catastrophic" will be restricted to medical treatment for a maximum of 400 weeks from the date of the injury.
