Unfortunately, there is no right to a trial by jury in a Georgia workers' compensation claim. In Georgia, disputed workers' compensation claims are decided by an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) at an administrative hearing. ALJ's are called upon to decide all varieties of work injury issues including whether an injured worker is entitled to medical treatment or income benefits. If any aspect of your claim is disputed, you will probably need an attorney to assist you at an administrative hearing at the State Board of Workers' Compensation.
