HOW IS A WORKERS’ COMP SETTLEMENT DETERMINED?
Workers’ Compensation Settlement Amounts
Benefits for workers’ compensation are usually paid out without the injured employee having to give up any rights through a settlement. In some cases, however, it may be in the best interest of an injured worker to settle a case. It may be the best way to maximize cash benefits and may allow you to get out of the workers’ comp system and move forward with your life.
