As one of the ten largest economies in the United States with a gross domestic product that ranks among the best in the world, Atlanta is home to several major businesses employing hundreds of thousands of workers across various industries. In addition to being the headquarters for major media enterprises like the Cable News Network (CNN), the Turner Broadcasting System (TBS), and Cox Enterprises, “The A” is also the global headquarters of major corporations like the Coca-Cola Company, the Home Depot, and the United Parcel Service (UPS).
Being a city with such robust employment not only means that many Georgians work in Atlanta, but several others can be at risk of suffering severe workplace injuries. While many workers obtain damages through the state’s workers’ compensation system, it is important to understand that some people who have been injured at work may also be able to hold contractors or other third parties liable for certain injuries.
