Workers' Compensation Settlements
A Sacramento Lawyer Explains the Benefits of Accepting a Settlement
Many times, settling your workers' compensation case is the best option
and can provide a wide array of advantages over going to trial. By accepting
a settlement that is to your satisfaction, you can avoid the time, cost,
and hassle associated with a trial. In addition to this, you can also
eliminate the risk of having a judge award you a lower settlement amount
than the insurance company was initially offering.

Workers' compensation cases can be settled in two ways. These include:
- Stipulated Finding and Award, which is entered into voluntarily by both
parties, reviewed by a judge, and determines the percentage of the individual's
disability, as well as his or her needs for medical care in the future
- Compromise and Release, which closes the case completely by providing a
lumps-sum payment and terminates your right to compensation for future
