If you suffered an injury at work in Atlanta, you have the right to a couple of different avenues for recovering damages. First, your employer is the first potential way to recover damages for your injury. This is called workers compensation, and it’s an insurance policy that companies pay for in the event that their workers are injured performing the duties of the job.
The second way that you may be able to recover damages is from a third party. If another person, not related to your work, or if another employee directly caused the accident or injury, they may be liable for the accident.
