When Should You Consider Your Settlement?
A workers compensation settlement should be considered by an injured client sometime following their injury. Learn about what a workers comp settlement or “compromise and release” is and whether it makes sense for you. Unlike a personal injury case or accident case where the injured party fights for a monetary settlement, there is rarely a right to a monetary settlement in a workers compensation claim.
In a personal injury claim, an injured party has the right to seek a trial and have a judge or jury decide whether they have a right to monetary claim. A workers compensation judge can not force the parties to agree to a workers comp settlement or “compromise and release”, though a judge does have the right to review an agreement between the parties to make sure the claimant understands his rights.
In some cases a workers comp settlement can be achieved early in the development of the claim, though it is always prudent to be cautious and learn the extent of your injury and the effect it will have on your well being and your ability to return to gainful employment before you authorize your attorney to begin negotiating a settlement.
Under Pennsylvania law, a compromise and release can be for a total settlement of the case including settlement of the insurance’s companies obligations to future medical payments and wage payments; or a partial settlement of only the workers compensation benefits (loss wages). However, in the past few years, insurance companies have been reluctant to agree to a workers compensation settlement that does not result in a global or final release of their responsibilities. Speak to an experienced workers compensation lawyer to discuss your rights and whether it is time to consider negotiating for a monetary settlement.
