What Types Of Injuries Illnesses Or Diseases Are Covered By Workers Compensation

According to Georgia Workers’ Compensation Law, any injury, illness, disease, or fatality that arises out of and in the course of employment is covered by workers’ compensation.  In other words, workers’ compensation generally covers any injury that occurs while you are performing your assigned job during your assigned work hours.  There are some exceptions to this general rule, so if you have any questions or concerns about whether your injury, illness, or disease, or a family member’s fatality, is covered by workers’ compensation, we recommend contacting an experienced Atlanta workers’ compensation attorney.
