If you had a Georgia workers compensation claim within the past four years and did not settle the claim you may be owed permanent partial disability (PPD) benefits.
Not everyone hires a lawyer for his workers’ compensation claim. Although some workers compensation claims are settled there are claims when you suffer an injury and go back to work for the same company. If you returned to work for the company where you suffered your injury and if your injury caused any type of permanent problem, then you should have been paid PPD benefits. All injuries that needed surgery cause permanent partial disability. Some injuries that did not require surgery cause permanent partial disability. PPD benefits are paid even if you returned to work. PPD benefits are paid even if you returned to work for a different employer or are working for a different employer now.
