When a dispute arises in a Georgia workers' compensation claim, either
party may request a hearing in front of an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ).
For instance, a workers' compensation insurer may decide to fully deny any
workers' compensation income benefits or medical treatment. If the injured worker then requests a hearing, it
will be up to the ALJ to decide whether the insurance carrier has to pay
workers' compensation benefits. If you would like to discuss filing
a request for a hearing with a workers' compensation attorney, contact
