Airline Industry Workers

Airline Industry Workers

Airline workers such as Delta employees, Airtran workers, and baggage handlers for any airline are generally covered under workers’ compensation. If you have been injured on the job, you are entitled to immediate medical treatment. It is important to report the injury to your supervisor and accurately explain how the injury happened as a part of your job. There is a chance that your employer may require a drug screen. While the employer has pre-selected a list of doctors you may treat with, you have the power to select your physician. If you are missing time from work, you may also be entitled to weekly income benefits as outlined in the Georgia workers’ compensation law.

Our firm is equipped to handle clients who have worked as airplane mechanics, pilots, ground crews, hangar workers, shuttle bus drivers, ticketing clerks, and even food service employee. In Atlanta, much of the population is employed with the local Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport. Although this airport provides many jobs to the surrounding community, there are also ample opportunities to be hurt on the job, including those who provide cargo, cleaning, security, and ramp handling for the aviation industry.
If you are an airline worker of any kind that has been injured while on the job, contact us today.
