Should I Get a Lump Sum Settlement from Wokers' Comp?
People who have sustained a permanent injury as the result of an on-the-job accident are entitled to a lump-sum settlement award. In a lump sum workers' comp settlement, you will receive the full amount of compensation at the time of the settlement. In structured settlements, you receive some of the money upfront and then receive the rest over time.
It is important to have an experienced workers' compensation lawyer walk you through the legal process. We take a detail-oriented approach to working with our clients and explain everything from the beginning steps of filing a claim to the process of obtaining a settlement. We have the experience necessary to provide legal advice that is tailored to meet the needs of your unique situation.
