  • Compensation for all of your medical, prescription, hospital, and rehabilitation costs provided that you use an authorized doctor(s).
  • Two thirds of your average weekly wage up to a certain amount set by Georgia workers’ compensation law if you are unable to work for 7 or more days.
  • A portion of your average weekly wage if you are able to work only part time or in a lower paying position because of your injuries.
  • Help in getting a new job or training to qualify you for a new job.
  • Weekly benefits for a certain number of weeks if you are unable to return to work because of your injury.
