Workers Compensation Settlements

Whether you live in Newark or elsewhere, a workers compensation settlement can be complex, so it’s important to get help from an experienced lawyer before you settle. Not only is it beneficial to seek legal help from an experienced workers compensation firm, it’s also important you are aware of the various aspects and procedures involved.

With settlement situations come a number of legal questions and misunderstandings, and many employees are unsure whether - and when - they should settle their workers' compensation case. It's important to speak to a lawyer before considering a settlement.

Types of Workers Compensation Settlements

Workers compensation law provides a number of different types of settlements. These include:

Sec. 20 Settlements – If approved by the Workers Compensation Judge, the law provides the option of lump sum payment when the happening of the accident and/or causal connection between the claimed injury and the work-accident is at issue.

Agreement for Settlement – An employee and workers compensation insurance company may reach an agreement regarding the amount of compensation due and present it to the Workers’ Compensation Judge for approval.

Judgment - When there is conflict about the employee's entitlement to certain benefits, a trial may ensue and the workers’ compensation judge will decide your case.
