Workplace Injuries

Sources of Compensation

Workplace injuries can include those resulting from such things as a slip and fall or trip and fall or the use of machinery.  They can cover a broad range of severity and occur in countless situations while at work or performing one's work duties.  An Atlanta personal injury attorney can review your case with you to determine which avenues of compensation may be pursued.

Generally, the laws surrounding workers' compensation do not permit you to sue your employer for injuries sustained on the job.  However, in cases where a third party can be held liable, a claim may be made against them additional to your workers' compensation claim.  Examples of this would be where an injury was caused by a defective product or exposure to a toxic substance.  There are certain very specific cases in which you may be able to sue your employer directly or make a claim for damages from a state fund.
