In an accepted Georgia workers' compensation claim, there is no hard and fast deadline for settlement. There is a two year Statute of Limitations for requesting a hearing for reinstatement of benefits after suspension of TTD benefits. It is generally a good idea to discuss settlement after the injured worker has undergone the majority of his or her medical treatment and after he or she has reached maximum medical improvement (MMI).
