Should I Accept A Settlement Offer?

If you were injured on the job, you may have received a settlement offer from your employer's insurance company. However, this offer may or may not take into account the full extent of your current injuries and future needs. That's why it is so important to consult an experienced lawyer before you sign anything.

At The Brewer Law Offices P.C., serving the Denver Metro area and the mountain communities of Summit County, we will tell you what you must know before you make any decisions in your case, including the decision to settle it. From the free initial consultation to the conclusion of your case, we are here to offer compassionate guidance and strong support through the entire workers' compensation process.

Considering The Full Extent Of Your Needs

In our experience, many lawyers are not willing to consult with individuals who already have a settlement offer. However, attorney Amy Brewer will. She will take the time to go over your case and settlement offer in depth. Whether she believes she can get you more money or she thinks the settlement looks reasonable, you can count on her for an honest and straightforward opinion.

Here are a few questions she will take into account:

  • Have you been adequately compensated for your lost wages?
  • Have you received the medical treatment you need to cure and alleviate your injury?
  • Have all your medical bills been paid?
  • Have you received any permanent disability benefits to which you may be entitled?
  • What value does the settlement contain for future medical care?

If you choose to settle your workers' compensation claim, you will likely either receive a lump sum payment or a lump sum plus annuity. The payment amounts are based on the extent of your impairment.
