If you’ve been involved in an accident while working for Frontier Airlines, you could be dealing with painful injuries that are expensive to treat and require you to take time off from work. If that’s the case, you don’t have to cover medical bills and other losses out of pocket. Instead, you can file a Georgia Frontier Airlines workers’ compensation claim.
At John Foy & Associates, our Atlanta airline workers’ compensation lawyers have over two decades of experience helping injured employees like yourself get access to life-saving benefits. If you choose to work with our team, you can rest assured that we’ll work tirelessly to get the compensation you need to get back on your feet.
Am I Eligible to File a Frontier Airlines Workers’ Comp Claim in Georgia?
If you’ve been injured in a work accident at Frontier Airlines, you might be unsure whether you’re covered by workers’ comp or if your injuries qualify for compensation. Under Georgia’s workers’ comp law, all companies with three or more employees must carry workers’ comp insurance. Furthermore, workers’ comp insurance goes into effect on your first day at work.
No matter how new you are in your position, you’ll likely be covered by your employer’s workers’ comp insurance policy. As long as your accident occurred at your place of work and while you were on the clock, you’ll be able to file a claim for benefits.
Just because you’re eligible to file a claim doesn’t mean you’ll be able to obtain the benefits you need to move past your injuries. Filing a strong claim can be difficult, especially if you’re trying to overcome a serious injury. To ensure you have the best chance possible at receiving a fair outcome, you’ll want to work with a skilled attorney.
