When Are Workers' Compensation Settlements a Good Idea?
We have substantial experience dealing with insurance companies and structuring our clients' benefits favorably. With her background as a registered nurse, Attorney Greening can work closely with your doctor to get a clear understanding of your medical condition and prognosis so she can advise you.
If your current and future medical expenses, and the other benefits you should receive, are more or less predictable, a settlement could be in your interest. In cases of greater uncertainty, having your benefits paid over time may be better for you:
- Your workers' compensation benefits can never be reduced or eliminated
- You don't have to worry that the insurance company could dispute your medical benefits claims
- You don't have to worry that your ability to work or level of impairment could be challenged in the future
- Your benefits will not depend on continued proof of your medical condition
On the other hand, workers' compensation settlements are not as valuable for people whose medical conditions have not fully developed or whose conditions are expected to worsen in the future. This makes it difficult to predict the future cost of the medical care they will need. A medical condition that is unclear can also make it difficult to know how likely it is that the person will be able to work at the same level as before. This could affect the wage replacement benefits the person might receive.
