Should You Settle Your Workers’ Comp Claim?By Pyle Law, September 30 2020 6:06 pm
Some workers’ compensation claims end with a settlement offer, though you should not simply accept the first offer made by the insurance company. Instead, have a trusted workers’ comp attorney review your situation to see if an offer is adequate.
If you have been seriously injured on the job, you face a difficult road toward recovery ahead. The best way to ensure your most complete recovery is by obtaining compensation that covers your full range of damages. While that’s what workers’ compensation insurance is designed to do, it’s important to recognize that these insurance companies – just like all other insurance companies – are in the business of making money, and this often translates to pressing early and inadequate settlement offers on claimants like you. Working closely with an experienced Kansas workers’ compensation attorney is the surest path forward toward an optimal case resolution.
If you’ve been injured at work, there are three specific steps that you should take first and foremost, including:
Once you’ve accomplished these three tasks, you can rest easier with the knowledge that you are well on your way to defending your rights and to procuring the compensation to which you are entitled.
The fact is that your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance provider may offer a speedy settlement offer, but you are ill-advised to accept it without carefully going over the specifics with your workers’ comp attorney. Until your injuries have been resolved – or carefully considered in relation to probable outcomes and related potential health concerns in your future – accepting a settlement offer can leave you with far less than you need to reach your optimal recovery. Serious injuries can lead to serious secondary health concerns and a decreased earning potential into your future that must be adequately addressed before accepting compensation in the form of a settlement, which curtails your right to pursue more adequate coverage at a later date.
Your workers’ compensation attorney and legal team will carefully attend to the specifics of your case in order to help ensure all of the following:
