How Does The The Americans With Disabilities Act Affect Workers Compensation Claims

Injured workers who qualify for workers’ compensation benefits can qualify for protection under the Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”), but only if they “qualify” for this protection.  To qualify for ADA protection, an injured worker must suffer from a work-related injury that results in a physical or mental impairment that is so severe that it “substantially limits” a major life activity.  Many injured workers suffer from these types of injuries, but many others only suffer from less severe injuries that heal within a shorter period of time and result in little, or no, permanent impairment.  If you feel that your employer has discriminated against you as a result of your on-the-job injury, we encourage you to contact an experienced Atlanta workers’ compensation attorney or an experienced Atlanta employment law attorney who can discuss your case with you.
