Workers' comp trials in Georgia.

Workers' compensation trials in Georgia take place in front of an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ). There is no right to trial by jury for Georgia workers' compensation claims. The ALJ will consider all of the testimony and evidence in your case and make a ruling on the issues before him or her. The ALJ's in Georgia are experienced and will carefully consider all of the evidence in front of them before making a decision. It is also important to remember that a Georgia workers' compensation ALJ does not have the authority to order either side to settle a claim. The only way to settle a work injury claim in Georgia is for the parties to agree on a settlement amount.
