How can I settle my workers' compensation case?

In Georgia, the only way to settle a workers' compensation claim is to reach an agreement with the workers' comp insurance company as to the future value of the claim. Settlement generally closes out your entitlement to weekly income benefits and future medical treatment. A jury cannot award a settlement for a Georgia workers' compensation case. The insurace carrier will consider three things when determining the settlement value of your claim: Temporary Total Disability (TTD) benefits, your Permaent Partial Disability (PPD) rating, and future medical treatment. The future value of all of these components is subject to some debate, and an experienced attorney can help realize the full value of claim. Contact Atlanta attorney Brian H.
