What is the longest you can be on workers' comp in Georgia?
In Georgia, the system is set up for injured workers to receive medical treatment and also weekly benefits up to 400 weeks from their date of accident, however, if someone is catastrophically injured, for example, if they have a physical brain injury, paraplegia, quadriplegia or significant burns and a few other categories; They are potentially entitled to lifetime weekly benefits and lifetime medical care and the one other kind of caveat to that is, if you have a prosthesis or any kind of implanted device, you have a lifetime replacement of that device as well.
