Should I Get a Lump Sum Settlement from Workers 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.
