Is Settlement the Right Approach for Your Workers’ Compensation Case?

If you are receiving Workers’ Comp benefits, you may get a call from the insurance company offering a settlement. It’s a big decision, and the considerations can feel overwhelming. The insurance adjuster may be pressuring you to take the money now. You may be getting advice from friends and family who have settled claims of their own. But it’s important to remember that every Workers’ Comp claim is different, and settlement is not always the right choice.

 

At Stow Garvin & Glenn our attorneys specialize in Workers’ Compensation, and we can help you make the best decision for you and your family. Our dedicated legal team can help you address important questions before you make a decision about settling your claim. Here are just a few of the key questions we would cover:

  • Will your injury require long term medical care?

  • Are you a Medicare beneficiary?

  • Do you have health insurance through other means?

  • Should you apply for social security disability?

  • Will you be able to return to work?

  • Are you only able to do light-duty work?

  • Do you want to remain with your current employer?

  • Are you ready to get the insurance company out of your life for good?

  • Will a settlement benefit you financially?

The Workers’ Compensation attorneys at Stow Garvin & Glenn can help you explore these questions and more so you can make the best decision for you and your family. And if settlement is the right decision for you, we can help you negotiate the best possible compensation.
