Can I get pain and suffering for my worker's compensation claim? No, not in Georgia. There is not enough money to pay for the pain and suffering you experience in a worker's compensation claim. But with an attorney to help you, that pain and suffering can be minimized.
Do I have to settle my case? No. The decision to settle is the client's alone, and many factors go into making that choice. Is there a huge amount of medical needed? Is the offer reasonable? All of these must be weighed carefully when discussing settlement.
