- Musculoskeletal Injuries
A serious injury to a bone or attached muscle can make it impossible to lift, turn or take on daily tasks. If you suffered a musculoskeletal injury because of your job in Georgia, you are entitled to receive medical treatment and benefits for lost or depleted wages while you are unable to work at your job.
- Knee, Shoulder and Joint Injury
We don't realize how much we depend on our key joints such as knees, shoulders, elbows and hips until we suffer an immobilizing injury. A serious joint injury may require orthopedic surgery to replace key components. Unfortunately, many of these types of injuries are the result of wear and tear over time, rather than a single accident.
- Neck, Back and Spine Injury
A serious injury to your neck, back or spine can mean a lifetime of pain, immobility and even paralysis. a bone or attached muscle can make it impossible to lift, turn or take on daily tasks. If you suffered a back injury on the job in Georgia, or because of your work-related activities, you are entitled to seek medical care and wage benefits from your employer's workers' compensation insurance coverage.
- Mental Illness
Employers and workers' compensation insurance carriers frown on workers' comp claims for psychological disorders. The Georgia State Board of Workers' Compensation does, however, approve claims for certain types of psychological and emotional disabilities which are precipitated by a physical injury.
- Workplace Injuries
On-the-job injuries are as diverse as the workplaces in which they occur. Not all injuries occur in an industrial setting or by way of an accident or single traumatic event. In fact, an increasing percentage of on-job-injuries occur over time through repetitive movements or long-term exposure to certain conditions.
- Carpal Tunnel Injury
The chronic wrist pain, uncomfortable forearm tingling and debilitating hand weakness caused by carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) are the result of a pinched main nerve running the length of the arm, connecting the fingers and hand to the spinal cord. Workplace tasks involving hand and arm vibration, repetitive motion or overuse are common causes. In early stages, CTS may be a mere annoyance or inconvenience.
- Repetitive Stress Injury
Most workers in Georgia are aware that an injury suffered in a workplace accident will qualify for medical treatment and wage benefits through the state's workers' compensation system. However, workers who suffer an injury due to repetitive motion and stress over a period of months and years may also receive disability benefits.
