In Georgia, settling a workers' compensation claim is voluntary. The injured worker generally begins the settlement process by making an initial settlement demand. The Employer/Insurer will then respond with a settlemet offer, and the parties negotiate until an agreement is reached. Not all workers' compensation cases settle, but the parties are often able to reach a settlement agreement.
