Workers' Compensation Cash Advance Georgia

Are you looking for a cash advance on your workers' comp lawsuit in the state of Georgia?  Bridgeway Legal Funding can help you meet your everyday needs. 

 

Workers’ Compensation

Workers’ compensation is an insurance program paid for by your employer, which may provide you with medical, rehab and income benefits if you have an accident on the job.  These benefits are designed to help you eventually return to work.  Workers’ compensation will also benefit your dependents should you pass away due to a job related injury. 

 

In the state of Georgia you are covered on the first day of your job.  The law in Georgia requires employers with 3 or more workers, including part-time workers, to have workers’ compensation insurance. 

 

Medical Benefits

If your accident occurred before June 30, 2013 you are entitled to lifetime medical benefits.  If your accident occurred on or after July 1, 2013 you are entitled to 400 weeks of medical benefits from the date of the accident. 

 

Weekly Cash Benefits

You are entitled to weekly income benefits if you are unable to perform your job for more than 7 days.  Your benefit is calculated by multipling 2/3 by your average weekly wage.  You cannot receive more than $550.00 per week for an accident that occurred on or after July 1, 2015. 

 

Filing a Claim

You can file a claim with the State Board of Workers’ Compensation by calling (404) 656-3818 inside the metro Atlanta area and 1-800-533-0682 if you’re outside the metro Atlanta area.  You can also write to them at:

 

State Board of Workers’ Compensation

270 Peachtree Street, NW

Atlanta, GA 30303-1299

 

Hearing

If you do not receive any benefits after filing a claim you can request a hearing before the board.  You claim will be determined by an Administrative Law Judge who listens to both sides in what is like a trial in the courts of Georgia.  The decision will be based on the law and facts of your case.  You should get a lawyer to prepare your case and present your claim properly.
