Disparity in Workers Comp Benefits From State To State


Article discusses the bizarre reality where two individuals lose the same limb, one lives in Alabama the other 75 miles away in Georgia. Its truly strange, and rather frightening. One would think every state in the United States treats their workers similarly, but clearly this is not the case. One state is like the first world, the other state treats their workers as if they were working in a third world country. Truly strange.
