Compromises and Releases, often referred to as “C & R’s,” are when you settle your worker’s compensation claim for a lump sum of money. The settlement can include future medical costs and future lost wages.
Why should you hire an attorney to represent you in negotiating a compromise and release? First, you are negotiating the settlement with your employer’s workers compensation insurance company and the goal of an insurance company is to make money, i.e., settle your claim for as little amount as possible. An experienced attorney knows what strategies to use and what your claim is worth. What may sound like a lot of money to you, may not be in the area of Pennsylvania worker’s compensation law.
Second, any C & R must be approved by a judge. This entails going in front of a judge and giving live testimony. An experienced attorney will counsel you prior to your giving testimony and will also be at your side to guide you through the hearing. Third, the insurance company will definitely be represented by an attorney. Therefore, if you attempt to represent yourself, you are going against a lawyer that represents an insurance company that is trying to rip you off and get you less money than your case is worth.
