Jury award of damages in workers' compensation claim.

Many injured workers wonder if they are able to have a trial by jury in a workers' compensation claim. In Georgia, there is no right to a jury trial in a workers' comp claim. Any disputed issues are heard in front of an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ). An ALJ's decisions can be appealed but there is no right to a jury trial. If you have a separate personal injury claim against a party other than your employer, you may have a right to a trial by jury. Call Atlanta work comp lawyer Brian H. Sumrall if you have any questions about your workers' compensation claim. You can reach Mr. Sumrall directy at (404) 857-3835. You can also visit our website at
