As an employee, you get up every day expecting to be safe and taken care of while on the job. So, when you are hurt on the job, it can cause much more harm than just a physical injury. Job injuries are occasionally horrible experiences and you may feel a combination of shame and embarrassment, along with the pain of your injury.
Being hurt at work can be very frustrating and confusing for many people. In Georgia, the Workers’ Compensation Act applies to businesses with three or more regular employees. Generally, any physical injury or accident that arose out of and in the course of employment qualifies for workers’ compensation.
