Obtaining Settlement

Obtaining a cash, lump sum settlement of your workers’ compensation claim can be a way to resolve the claim.

  • Regain control of your life and no longer worry about your next workers’ compensation check
  • Are no longer forced to work with an adjuster (or the workers’ compensation system)
  • Have control over which medical providers you use
  • Can invest your money as you see fit

A workers’ compensation settlement means that you trade rights to future benefits for one lump sum cash payout. In order to do this properly, you must understand your situation and what your claim is worth. This means fully understanding:

  • The extent of your injury
  • The length you have been on workers’ compensation
  • Your average weekly wage and compensation rate
  • How your injury affects your ability to undertake (light-duty) work

A settlement does not compensate you for pain, loss of job, promotion or associated career issues. This is a business decision for the workers’ compensation insurance company. As such, it will do what it can to save money; an adjuster will calculate how much the payments will cost over the next months or years without considering the individual.

As such, you need someone looking out for you. Our team and lawyer are here to bring their years of experience to help you understand the value of your case so that you can make the best financial decision.
