Atlanta, GA -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/19/2019 -- Every year, thousands of workers sustain injuries while in the workplace or performing work-related duties. When a significant injury is sustained, individuals will have to decide whether to pursue workers compensation or to file a lawsuit to cover their damages. As a leading workman comp attorney in Atlanta, The Law Offices of Darwin F. Johnson has offered advice on some points to consider before taking action to receive compensation.

Firstly, if somebody is allocated workers' compensation for their injuries, they will not be able to sue. This is because workers compensation is there to pay dividends on any amount a claimant may receive in court. Another critical point to consider is that workers compensation is a form of insurance. Therefore, any claimants hoping to receive ongoing health and medical care may go through difficulty with their employer. This means that a lawsuit may be beneficial in getting claimants' rights recognized.

The significant difference between a personal injury lawsuit and a workers compensation claim is that in a successful lawsuit, an employee is entitled to recover all damages that they have sustained. Workers' compensation stops claimants from being eligible to claim for pain and suffering, meaning that both careful consideration and legal advice are recommended before pursuing either of these proceedings.

Workers' compensation will cover income and medical care but will often be capped at a certain level. For long term injuries and disabilities, or if workers compensation does not fully cover living and medical costs, claimants are advised to consider suing.
