Deadlines for mailing settlement check in workers' compensation claim.

In Georgia, all workers' compensation settlements have to be approved by the State Board of Workers' Compensation. Once a settlement is stamped "approved" by the State Board's settlement division, the insurance carrier or employer has twenty days to issue the check. If the settlement check is not issued in a timely fashion, a twenty percent penalty is owed. If you have questions about any aspect of your workers' compensation claim contact Atlanta work injury attorney Brian H. Sumrall at (404) 857-3835 or visit
