The Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International
Airport is a major hub for airline travel in the United States, and the
large volume of planes flying in and out each day creates a need for more
airline and airport workers. The large amount of employees working at and
traveling through airports in Atlanta and the rest of Georgia creates more
opportunities for accidents to occur which can lead to serious injuries.
When workplace accidents happen, workers’ compensation benefits may be
available for injured airline employees.
Our firm has assisted injured workers in many diverse industries,
including the airline industry. It can be difficult to pay for necessary
medical treatment and other expenses while your injuries prevent you from
working and earning a paycheck. Workers’ compensation benefits are
designed to help bridge the gap between the physical recovery and the
return to work.

Heavy lifting, dangerous chemicals and
materials, electrical problems, hearing loss and other hazards are present
in the work environment of airline workers. Understanding your injuries
and what caused those injuries is an important step in presenting your
case in a workers’ compensation claim or appeal.
