Link Between Physical and Psychological Injuries Necessary Under Georgia Workers' Compensation Law

shutterstock_153623993-300x200.jpgWhich types of injuries are considered compensable in a Georgiaworkers' compensation case? The short answer is "most, but, unfortunately, not all." For example, if there is an explosion at work, and a worker is killed, the worker's family will probably be entitled to death benefits on the deceased employee's behalf. If a second worker is physically injured in the explosion, but he or she is not killed, that person may be entitled to benefits for medical expenses and time off from work due to injuries suffered in the accident.

Defective Roadway Claim Against City Turns on Issue of Notice

photo_93619_20170529-300x200.jpgIn an Atlanta car accident lawsuit, the defendant is not always a negligent motorist whose actions led to a crash. Sometimes, a party who was not even present at the accident scene may be named as a defendant - such as in a product liability lawsuit against the manufacturer of an uncrashworthy vehicle or, as in a recent appellate case, a city (and city officials) who allegedly failed to maintain a roadway, thus causing an accident.

Workers' Compensation Board Orders Employer to Pay Almost Two Years of Temporary Disability Benefits to Georgia Woman

calculator-288x300.jpgUnfortunately, not every employer fully complies with the duties and responsibilities placed on them by the Georgia workers' compensation laws. Sometimes, an employer may totally deny a claim, while other times the employer may only deny particular benefits sought by a person hurt at work. For example, an employer might admit that a worker was injured on the job and may be willing to pay for the employee's medical care but deny the employee's request for light duty work or temporary disability benefits.

Insurance Company Liable for Jury Award Exceeding Coverage in Georgia Car Accident Case

shutterstock_186812807-300x200.jpgIn order to recover money damages for injuries or a loved one's wrongful death following an Atlanta car accident, the claimant must be able to prove that the defendant owed the claimant a particular duty, that the duty was breached, that the claimant suffered some type of damage, and that there was a link of causation between the breach of duty and the damage suffered by the claimant.

Georgia Statute of Limitations Bars Parents' Child Injury Claim

photo_1755_20060703-200x300.jpgThere's an expression, "don't sweat the small stuff," that implies that the finer details of a situation often do not really matter. While this may be true for some things, it is definitely not true in a Georgia premises liability case.

Aggravation of Pre-Existing Condition in Georgia Workers' Compensation Claims

shutterstock_96495449-300x193.jpgGenerally in the law, a defendant "takes the plaintiff as he finds him," even if the plaintiff had some pre-existing malady that made him or her more susceptible to injury. This is usually true in workers' compensation as well, in which the law holds an employer liable for work-related incidents or injuries that aggravate a pre-existing condition.

Suspension of Weekly Workers' Comp Benefits Possible When Employer Offers Work

photo_21326_20120124-300x201.jpgThose who are hurt on the job may not be able to return to their regular duties, either temporarily or permanently. This can affect the amount of benefits to which an injured employee in an Atlanta workers' compensation case is entitled, so it is an important distinction.

Georgia Court: Only One UM Policy Available Despite Two Policy Numbers

photo_54910_20151126-300x300.jpgAtlanta wrongful death lawsuits can be very difficult, not only emotionally but also procedurally. Often times a family must relive the accident as they seek to prove the elements of negligence (duty, breach of duty, causation, and damages), in addition to dealing with the inherent difficulties of placing a "value" on the loss of their loved one.
