What is a controvert in a workers' comp claim?

In Georgia, a workers' compensation carrier can dispute a claim in whole or in part. The work comp carrier is required to file a WC-3 controvert if they are disputing the entire claim, or if they are disputing part of a claim. A partial dispute may involve any number of issues, including medical treatment or entitlement to income benefits. Whenever a claim is controverted, the injured worker should request a hearing or trial in front of an Administrative Law Judge. Call experienced Atlanta work comp attorney Brian H. Sumrall if your claim is controverted. You can also visit
