Compensation for Workers Injured On the Job
Any employee can be the victim of a workplace accident. Accidents at work can put a tremendous amount of stress on the injured worker and on their family. Not only must the victim endure pain and suffering from their injuries, but also their family and finances suffer as a result of lost wages and medical bills and medical expenses.
In Georgia, an injured worker cannot sue their employer for injuries on the job. However, there are other sources to obtain compensation for the workplace injury. One is through workers' compensation (or worker's comp) insurance. The lawyers at the Studstill Firm, LLP can help you file your workers' comp claim and help you get the workers' compensation benefits you are entitled to.
Another source of compensation for workplace injuries is through a lawsuit against another person or company (a third party) whose negligence or fault contributed to the accident. By thoroughly investigating your workplace accident, the lawyers at the Studstill Firm, LLP can determine who is responsible and help you obtain full compensation for your personal injuries or wrongful death.

- Construction site, manufacturing plant and warehouse accidents
- Exposure to toxic chemicals (including exposure to asbestos, mold, paint, mercury, hazardous materials, toluene, benzene, hazardous waste, pesticides, PCBs and other dangerous substances)
- Dangerous tools and equipment (including defective saws, power tools, presses, cranes, machinery, and heavy equipment)
- Scaffolding and ladder falls
- Slip and fall or trip and fall
- Truck accident or car accident (including work-related traffic accidents while driving a delivery truck, company car, or a personal vehicle)
