How Do Lump Sum Settlements Work?
First of all, a hearing officer must approve a settlement. If that occurs, a compromise and release agreement will allow you to take a one time settlement for all past, present and future benefits.
You may be eligible, but is it the right thing to do? Depending on the extent of your injuries, your ability to work and other factors, you may be better off not taking a settlement. We will work closely with you to help you determine what is in your best interest.
