Employers and employees often prefer entering into a lump sum settlement agreement for multiple reasons. There are many complicated factors that need to be considered by an injured employee. An injured worker must particularly consider return to work issues in deciding how to conclude a workers’ compensation claim.
It is important to have an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer assist you when determining whether a lump sum settlement is in your best interests. An attorney can make sure that you are getting fully compensated and that all your possible benefits and medical treatment needs are taken into account in a settlement. An attorney can also draft the settlement documents to protect your present and future legal rights.
