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.

At Smolich & Smolich, we have been representing our clients in settlement negotiations for more than 40 years. 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 lump-sum payment and terminates your right to compensation for future medical care

Increase Your Chances of Fair & Satisfactory Settlement

Increase your chances of receiving the full and fair settlement from the insurance company. Our Sacramento workers' compensation lawyers will be at your side throughout every step of the negotiation process and we do everything in our power to make sure that the settlement amount is to your satisfaction and will adequately cover your current and future financial obligations.

  • You were so proactive and informative, you really did take away so much of my stress during the whole process.

    “I sincerely apologize for the delay! I truly thought I had already sent this off to almost 3 months ago! Thank goodness I had someone helping me clean and organize the apartment last week. She found your letter behind my bookcase. I would like to take this opportunity to once again thank you for your support and dedication throughout my case. You were a true blessing to me. You were so proactive and informative, you really did take away so much of my stress during the whole process. Just the fact that you returned a call so promptly was a very big deal to me. It let me know that I mattered to you, Sarah, and the firm. Thanks to the two of you I am finally settled in my own apartment and my mom was able to finally retire. So again, thank you from the depths of my heart for everything that you personally and your firm have done for me. You were true angels in my tie of need.”

  • Without Smolich & Smolich taking my case I would have never gotten my benefits!!!

    “Without Smolich & Smolich taking my case I would have never gotten my benefits!!! Rob Smolich took my case himself and was so helpful in every step of the way. I cant say anything negative about Smolich & Smolich. I had a lawyer before him and he was way more personable. His office took all the stress off my back and made me feel at ease during the time period of waiting. Have nothing but good things to say about this company. They are completely professional!!!!”

  • They know what it takes to win. Thank you all so much!

    “Thank you so much for your help. I was denied twice by social security disability. They are the most diligent and wonderfully. Yes it takes a while to get a hearing. If it wasn't for the great staff and attorneys here, I would have never been approved for disability. It was the best Christmas gift i received. They know what it takes to win. Thank you all so much!”
