What Type of Settlement Am I Entitled To?
Workers’ compensation laws are in place to protect employees if they are injured on the job. As such, if you are disabled or injured from an on-the-job accident, you shouldn’t have to pay for it. You may receive temporary disability benefits following a primary physician visit declaring that you are temporarily disabled. However, every case is unique and requires a specific approach. Two of the most common options are:
Stipulations with Request for an Award
This case enters you into a stipulated finding and award. In this scenario, all parties agree to the terms. You are awarded compensation, and future medical care can remain open during your recovery.
Compromise and Release
This case involves you disposing of your case to compromise for a lump sum paid to you. This ends the opportunity for future medical care but cuts ties with the case itself.
