Workers’ Compensation Laws are designed to ensure that employees who are injured or disabled on the job are provided with the payment of medical bills and a weekly disability payment for those time periods an individual is disabled from employment or suffering a loss of earnings.
There are many pitfalls along the way that may delay or harm your claim, including:
- Paying Medical bills on time
- Meetings with vocational counselors (hired by the workers’ comp insurance company)
- Demands by the workers’ compensation insurance company to see their “independent” medical specialist
- Surveillance by your employer or a workers’ compensation investigator
In some instances, a serious work-related injury may result in the negotiation of a lump-sum settlement. If you find that you are disabled from being able to return to your occupation and are either completely disabled or relegated to doing lighter duty work that results in you earning less money, talk to us about negotiating a lump-sum settlement for you.
Like any legal matter, there are pros and cons to entering into a lump-sum settlement. There are things that need to be addressed, such as Set-Aside trusts. Having an attorney negotiate the amount and terms of your lump-sum settlement is always in your best interest. If you have been hurt and can no longer work, you may qualify for a lump sum settlement for your Rhode Island or Massachusetts workers’ compensation case.Proof of Injury Is Essential in a Workers’ Compensation Claim
