Workers Compensation Settlements

Workers Compensation Settlements

Workers Compensation Settlements Since 1985

Since 1985, 1-800-THE-LAW2 workers’ compensation lawyers have been helping victims get the workers compensation settlements they deserve.

You can negotiate a workers compensation settlement with your workers compensation insurance company if you were injured at work.

According to the Department of Industrial Relations there are two ways to settle your workers compensation claim:

  1. Stipulation
    1. Payments – you come to an agreement with the claims administrator on the amount of weekly disability payments you’ll receive
    2. Medical care – the claims administrator agrees to pay for medical care
  2. Compromise and Release
    1. One payment – the claims administrator agrees on a lump sum to resolve the claim
    2. Medical care – if the lump sum includes estimates of future medical care, it is your responsibility to pay your doctor. The claims administrator will no longer pay

Your case is resolved when there is an agreement or judge issues an order about your payments and future medical care. Settlements must be received by a workers compensation administrative law judge.

If you and the claims administrator are unable to agree on a settlement, your dispute will need to be decided by a workers’ compensation judge.
