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.

Sacramento Attorneys Negotiating with the Insurance Company on Your Behalf

When it comes to settlements, there are numerous benefits that can be settled in numerous ways. However, ensuring that you receive the maximum amount possible from the insurance company requires the services of an experienced team of workers' compensation attorneys in Sacramento.

Our firm is well-prepared to review your case, inform you of your options, represent you at the negotiating table, and help you obtain the financial assistance you need for your injury or illness.

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 medical care
