#177 Georgia Workers' Compensation Lawyer - Can I Collect Pain & Suffering?

So can I collect pain and suffering for my workers’ compensation injury? Hello, my name is Ty Wilson. I'm a Georgia Workers’ Compensation Attorney practicing law in the state of Georgia. And our question for today is, “Can you collect on pain and suffering?” 

We represent a lot of people who have very painful injuries, ended up having to have surgery and the recovery can be long and can be painful. Unfortunately, the Georgia Workers Compensation Act does not provide any money for pain and suffering. That being said, we know a lot of people still want pain and suffering. It's just not something that the insurance company won't pay for if they do not have to. 

And I know that that can be a hard pill to swallow. However, that is the current law in Georgia. Personal injury cases do have a pain and suffering element to them. Workers’ compensation claims, though, do not. If a workers’ compensation attorney tells you that they can get you pain and suffering, you want to run and you want to run far away quickly because unless the Law has changed, currently 2021 you're not entitled to pain and suffering under Georgia Workers Compensation Act. Hope that information has been helpful and we will see you on the next video. Thank you.
