Obtaining a Workers’ Compensation Settlement
At some point, you may want to consider a lump sum settlement of your workers’ compensation case. If you settle, you will receive a lump sum of money and your case will be over. Settlements are intended to cover future benefits, including:
- Medical benefits
- Disability benefits
- Vocational rehabilitation disability
- Impairment benefits
- Death benefits
A settlement may be your best option if litigation looks to be time-consuming or expensive. In addition, many injured workers prefer settlement because it allows them to get out of the workers’ compensation system. But remember, lump sum settlements include all future benefits. If you receive a settlement, you will not be entitled to additional compensation or benefits if your condition becomes worse. Therefore, you should speak to a knowledgeable workers’ compensation attorney before settling your case.
