Benefits Of Workers Compensation Settlements

In many cases, our lawyers seek to resolve benefit disputes through diligent, aggressive settlement negotiations. Settlements may cover all types of benefits, including:

A settlement is often preferable to litigation because it is less time-consuming and costly, and it often helps employers and employees reach a more amicable resolution.

In addition, many injured workers prefer a settlement because it allows them to obtain lump sum compensation. However, because lump sum settlements generally include all future benefit, worker who accept settlements are not entitled to additional compensation or benefits if their condition worsens.

This is just one reason why you should speak to a knowledgeable workers compensation attorney before agreeing to a settlement.

Customer Reviews

I am very happy to have met Scott J. Sternberg. I have known many attorneys in my life but can honestly say that when you deal with Mr. Sternberg you get 100% of his attention which is very rare as most of the time you have to deal with secretaries and paralegals. I strongly recommend Mr. Sternberg and his firm.~ Marie
