In Georgia workers' compensation claims, settlement is a voluntary process. A jury cannot award a settlement and a judge cannot award a settlement. The only way to settle a workers' compensation claim in Georgia is for the parties to agree on a settlement amount. This agreement sometimes occurs at mediation and sometimes simply occurs during telephone calls with the workers' comp insurance carrier.
