Workers’ Compensation Lump-Sum Settlements
When you have been seriously injured in an accident at work, the workers’ compensation insurance company may choose to offer you a lump-sum settlement rather than provide long-term benefits. This lump-sum settlement can be a very attractive option; however, you should speak to an experienced lawyer before accepting any offers.
Insurance companies make it their business to offer the lowest amount of compensation they can. I am Woonsocket attorney David Bagus, and I will negotiate with the insurance companies to help you get the compensation you deserve.
Negotiating Workers’ Compensation Lump-Sum Settlements
Timing is very important when considering a lump-sum settlement. Sometimes, people are tempted to settle a claim before they fully understand the extent of their injuries. As your attorney, I will help you develop your case and document the injuries you have suffered. I can also put you in contact with vocational counselors and medical professionals who can provide their professional input into your situation. Once we have a complete idea of the past and future costs of your injury, I will push aggressively to pursue the maximum possible settlement.
When you contact my law office, I will stand by you throughout the entire process, communicating frequently and answering any questions you may have. I will personally handle every aspect of your workers’ compensation claim; your case will never be given to another attorney or to a paralegal.
