Consult with a Work Injury Attorney Before Accepting Lump-Sum Settlements
The Workers’ Compensation Act allows an injured worker to “settle” or “compromise and release” all liability under the Workers’ Compensation Act.
Settlement of a workers’ compensation claim is a permanent and significant step that should not be undertaken lightly, which is why you should first consult with a workers’ compensation lawyer before signing anything.
The workers’ compensation insurance company has a great deal of experience in negotiating and settling workers’ compensation claims. An injured worker should not undertake negotiations with the insurance company without having a competent, aggressive workers’ compensation lawyer representing their interest.
By choosing to work with me as your workers’ compensation lawyer, you will understand all your options and know whether a lump sum settlement is in your best interest.
If that is the case, you can rest assured that I will be at your side working to maximize your settlement.
