Can I Get a Lump Sum Settlement of my Workers' Compensation Claim?
In many cases, one of the choices available to an injured worker is to settle for a lump sum payment. At Lepley, Engelman, Yaw & Wilk, LLC, we will help you determine whether a lump sum settlement is the right solution for you. Each claim presents its own unique circumstances. Settlement makes sense in some cases, but not others.
Many workers' compensation insurance companies will demand that an injured worker give up his or her medical benefits as part of settling a claim for a lump sum. If you have an injury that will require ongoing medical treatment, giving up your medical benefits may not be in your best interest. Attorney Gary L. Black, Esq., of our firm, who has nearly 30 years of experience in handling workers' compensation cases, will help you determine whether a settlement is right for you.
If you are interested in discussing whether a settlement is right for you, or whether an offer made by the insurance company is fair, please feel free to call us to schedule a free consultation. We will not charge a fee unless we are able to obtain a settlement which is both reasonable and fair to you.Check out other articles by Lepley, Engelman, Yaw & Wilk
