If you’ve been injured at work or are suffering from a work-related illness, you may qualify for Workers’ Compensation Benefits. There are specific procedures that you must go through in order to be considered for Workers’ Compensation benefits. The first step to receiving benefits is to file your claim. The process for filing varies from state to state, so it’s important to know the process in your home state. At least in the state of Georgia, if you do not file a claim within 30 days of the initial injury, then it could result in a denial of your claim.
