I was injured on my job in Georgia and am receiving workers’ compensation benefits. Can I make a claim against my employer for pain and suffering?

In general, in Georgia an employee receiving workers’ compensation benefits for a work related injury is barred from bringing a personal injury claim against his/her employer for the same injuries. However, please consult an attorney to discuss the specific facts of your case. Please contact Rumsey & Ramsey at (770) 394-9400 to discuss the facts of your case with a lawyer.
