Settling Your Workers' Compensation Case

Over time, the process of maintaining your workers' compensation benefits can begin to feel like a burden. Employers and their insurance companies will repeatedly press you to undergo medical evaluations and continue to challenge your benefits. To ensure benefits into the future without facing additional pressure from employers and insurers, many injured workers decide to reach a settlement.

At the law firm of Jeffrey S. Gross, we are fully equipped to protect your rights during settlement negotiations to make sure you get what you deserve. We have successfully guided workers through the workers' compensation process for more than two decades and are led by a certified workers' compensation attorney.*

Compromise And Release Settlements

What is a compromise and release (C&R) settlement? It is a settlement for a lump sum of money that also accounts for future medical costs and lost wages. Once a compromise and release has been reached, the workers' compensation claim is resolved and terminated.

Our experienced representation is critical in these cases, as failing to negotiate a proper settlement could leave you at a disadvantage for the rest of your life as you struggle with your injury and lost wages. The insurance company will challenge every aspect of your claim in order to pay as little as possible. Our lawyers will build the strongest possible case and negotiate a settlement that is in your best interest.

Factors that will drive the outcome of your settlement negotiations include:

  • Your age
  • Your wage rate
  • Your ability/inability to work
  • Your overall health condition, including pre-existing conditions
  • Your abilities outside of work
  • Your vocational history, including your future earning capacity

We will negotiate the maximum amount of money you can get under the circumstances.

Hybrid Settlements

In some situations it is in the best interest of an injured worker to pursue a hybrid settlement. In a hybrid settlement, it is possible to leave open medical benefits while settling the wage loss component of the claim.
