When one thinks of a workplace accident, he or she likely thinks of an accident that causes injury; however, the injury is so minor that the worker is only out of work for a few days to recover. While these types of accident do occur, it is important to note that serious work accidents could occur in any industry and at any time.
When a worker in Georgia suffers a workplace injury, it is likely a shocking incident. No worker expects to be injured; even when they are aware they are working in an industry with heightened risks and dangers. It is especially shocking when a work accident leaves an employee temporally or permanently disabled. Many concerns and questions are likely racing around the head of the victim.
