Yes, you can appeal a decision by the Georgia State Board of Workers’ Compensation if you believe that the decision was wrong or unjust.
The appeal process is handled by the Georgia Court of Appeals and involves filing a notice of appeal within 20 days of the Board’s decision.
To file an appeal, you should consult with an experienced workers’ compensation attorney who can guide you through the process and help you build a strong case. Your attorney will review the Board’s decision and identify the grounds for appeal. They will then draft a notice of appeal, which must be filed with the Court of Appeals within 20 days of the Board’s decision.
Once the notice of appeal has been filed, your attorney will begin the appeals process.
This typically involves submitting written briefs, making oral arguments, and presenting evidence to support your case. The Court of Appeals will then review the Board’s decision and determine whether it should be upheld, reversed, or modified,” explains Marietta Workers’ Comp Attorney Ramiro Rodriguez, Jr.
It’s important to note that the appeals process can be complex and time-consuming, so it’s essential to work with an experienced attorney who can help you navigate the system and achieve the best possible outcome for your case.
