The best outcome for a workers' compensation claim is for the injured worker to get better and return to work at 100% of his capacity. Sadly, this is not always possible. Frequently, injured workers are never able to return to their normal duty jobs and are on light duty restrictions for an extended period of time. The best possible outcome for a work comp claim where an individual cannot return to work is settlement. Settlement allows injured workers to move on with their lives and find a job more suitable to their physical capabilities following a work injury. Every case is different but settlement is the best option for many injured workers. Call Atlanta work comp attorney Brian H.
