Should You Settle Your Workers’ Compensation Case?
Whether to settle your workers’ compensation case might be one of the most pressing questions you face after a work-related injury. You should not make this decision without the counsel and help of an experienced team of attorneys.
At DiLoreto, Cosentino & Bolinger, we can help you. Serving clients for more than 40 years, we have offices in Chambersburg to serve clients throughout central Pennsylvania in all types of workers’ compensation matters, including lump sum settlement negotiations. We take a personalized, detail-oriented approach to serving our clients’ needs in workers’ comp matters.
Our lawyers can help you by:
- Determining what your claim is worth: We will look at the extent of your injuries, the long-term costs of medical care and other compensations, the likelihood of your injuries and other factors to determine the true cost of your claim. Our attorneys have the experience needed to provide a realistic estimate of your costs to help make a smart determination regarding a settlement offer.
- Determining your needs: Regardless of the true value of a claim or the amount of a settlement offer, you might have immediate financial needs to discuss before making a choice regarding a settlement offer.
- Negotiating your settlement: Once we establish the true value of your case and determine your immediate and long-term needs, our lawyers will use their vast experience to negotiate a favorable settlement on your behalf.
- Seeking other options for compensation: In most cases, workers’ compensation is inadequate to cover the true extent of your costs and damages long-term. If the circumstances merit, we can bring a third-party liability claim to increase your total compensation award.
