Settling Your Workers’ Comp Claim

Most people can’t afford to live on less than they currently bring home. Unfortunately, workers’ compensation forces you to do just that. If you were injured at work, you are entitled to income benefits. However, this benefit is limited to two-thirds of your average weekly wages.Insurance companies know it is difficult to make ends meet during your case. They often take advantage of this by 1) delaying treatment and 2) making low settlement offers — hoping you will settle for a lower amount because you are desperate.You need to be careful before accepting a settlement offer — it may not be as good as it seems. At Barr Law Offices LLC, we will evaluate your case and help you negotiate a settlement offer that fairly and fully compensates you for your injury.

Once You Settle Your Case, Your Benefits Stop. Make Sure Your Settlement Agreement Is Fair.

If you were injured at work, you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. These benefits include two-thirds of your lost wages and medical benefits to cover the costs of medical care.

Insurance companies often try to settle workers’ comp cases so they can stop paying these benefits.

Claims adjusters are experienced professionals. After reviewing your injury, they know how much it will cost the insurance company to continue paying you benefits until you can return to work. They make settlement offers for one reason: to save the company money.

Let our experience and knowledge work for you.

At Barr Law Offices LLC, our lawyers carefully examine your medical records that we get from your treating physician to ensure the full extent of your injuries are known.

Will you need surgery in the future? How long will you be in physical therapy? How long will you need those epidural steroid injections in your back? How long will your hip replacement last? Is there a chance your injury could keep you out of the workforce for life?

We use this information to negotiate a fair settlement offer that fully compensates you for your injuries.

Having An Experienced Lawyer Benefits You

Insurance companies know you don’t know what your case is worth. But we do. As soon as you have an attorney involved, the value of your case increases.

Even though it may not always be in your best interest to settle, there are benefits to settling your case. This is different for every person. However, one of the benefits to settling your case is the control that comes with not having to deal with the insurance company or the workers’ compensation system anymore.
