How to Get What’s Best for You

    You were injured on the job, and it disrupted your life. You’re receiving workers’ compensation benefits to help you through a difficult time.

    Where does this lead?

    You may need to decide whether you should take a one-time, lump sum settlement to finish your workers’ comp claim.

    A settlement can benefit you, but it also benefits your employer and the workers’ comp insurance company by allowing them to close out your claim.

    You want a strong, experienced negotiator fighting for what’s best for you.

    How Workers’ Comp Settlements Work

    The decision to seek a settlement of your workers’ comp claim usually comes when you’re ready to put the workers’ comp process behind you and move on to the next chapter in your life.

    Getting a settlement isn’t automatic, though.

    Here are some key facts about settlements:

    • Settlements are not required.
    • Settlements are not guaranteed.
    • You shouldn’t accept the first amount your employer or an insurance company offers.
    • Settlements usually happen once you’ve received most of the medical care you’ll need because of your injury.
    • A settlement isn’t designed to provide lifelong financial security.
    • Settlements are final.

    Once you take a settlement check, you won’t be able to get additional workers’ comp support for the same workplace injury.

    So you need to make your decision carefully. You need to time your decision right.

    Navigating the workers’ comp process is difficult in the first place. Maintaining your normal lifestyle while relying on workers’ comp benefits is hard enough.

    A workers’ compensation attorney can help you sort through the decisions you need to make. At Workers’ Compensation, LLC, you can get a consultation on your situation free of charge.

    How to Maximize Your Workers’ Comp Benefits—and Settlement

    A settlement might be your last step in a long process with workers’ comp.

    To position yourself for the most favorable result, it’s best to start at the beginning of your claim.

    Do this:

    • Maximize the medical services you get.
    • Maximize the lost wages pay you collect.
    • Claim any missed back payments you’re entitled to receive.

    That way you’ll be in the best position in the end to also maximize your settlement.

    Workers’ comp is like a game in which the early moves you make can change the outcome much later.

    If you don’t start with the strongest case for benefits, you might find out, months or years into your claim, that you should be getting more. Nobody wants that.

    But, if you talk to a workers’ compensation lawyer as soon as possible after your injury, you can avoid getting shortchanged, at every step of the process.

    We want to help you get past your work injury and the economic pain that goes with it so you can focus on living your life.
