Coca-Cola is one of the most recognizable brands on the planet and one of Georgia's largest employers. It employs more than 9,000 people throughout the Peach State, most of whom are based right here in Metro Atlanta where the company is headquartered.
Though working for Coca-Cola can offer numerous benefits, it can also be dangerous. Workers routinely face hazards that could cause injury or even death. Some of the most common risks for Coca-Cola employees include:
- Slips and falls (or trips and falls)
- Repetitive motion injuries
- Falling objects
- Falls from heights
- Chemical exposure
- Heavy equipment accidents (such as caught-in or caught-between incidents)
- Vehicle accidents
Injuries reported by Coca-Cola workers often include neck, back, shoulder, and head injuries; broken bones; chemical burns; and respiratory issues. Suffering these or other injuries can cause you to require medical treatment or even miss work. If something like this happened to you, we may be able to help.
Potential Benefits for Injured Employees
Georgia offers strong protections for injured workers. After suffering a workplace injury, you may be entitled to workers' compensation benefits, such as coverage for related medical treatment and payments to replace a portion of the earnings you are losing while you are unable to work. Additionally, Georgia Workers' Compensation is a no-fault system, which means you may qualify for benefits even if you were responsible for your accident and injuries.
Getting Help for Your Workplace Injury
People who are injured on the job often expect the workers' compensation claims process to go smoothly. However, getting the benefits you need and deserve for a workplace injury can be challenging without the help of a knowledgeable and skilled workers' comp lawyer. Fortunately, you've come to the right place.
