How Do I Know What My Workers’ Comp Settlement Is Worth?
If you filed a workers’ comp claim and it has been accepted, you will likely be offered some type of settlement. Understanding what your settlement should be and if you are offered the full amount of benefits you deserve for your settlement can be tricky, especially if you do not have a lawyer review your settlement before accepting.
