Can a Georgia workers’ compensation insurer intervene in an employee’s Georgia lawsuit against a third party in the time period after the Georgia statute of limitations for the employee’s bodily injuries has expired ?

Yes, a Georgia workers’ compensation insurer can file a motion to intervene in a Georgia lawsuit in an attempt to recover the workers’ compensation benefits it has paid to an employee, if the employee has previously filed a lawsuit against the negligent third party within the time allowed by Georgia law for the bodily injury claim.
