Workers' Compensation Lawyer Helps You Get Your Rightful Compensation

workers' compensation settlement

In California, there are various types of workers' compensation settlements, including:

  • Stipulated Finding and Award
  • Compromise and Release
  • Medicare Set-Aside Trusts

Stipulated Finding & Award

Stipulated Finding and Award is an agreement that includes decisions that a judge could have made at trial. It is entered into voluntarily by both sides: the injured and the insurance company adjuster. The case is rated with the use of a disability chart that establishes the value of the disability. Disability payments will then be made bi-weekly until the entire amount is paid.

Compromise & Release

A Compromise and Release settlement will completely end the case. If you are being represented by our workers' compensation attorney, he can negotiate a total settlement value of your case. The settlement is based on the level of permanent disability that is indicated by the medical reports. In this case, one lump sum will be paid to the injured worker. If you pursue this route, it is important that you secure the representation of our firm's lawyer to ensure that you receive a fair settlement. In some cases, the insurance company will need Medicare approval, which can further complicate your case.
