In the course of your workers' compensation case, you might receive a cash settlement offer from the insurance company. These offers are always tempting- you receive immediate cash and don't have to deal with the bureaucracy any more.
However, you already understand that the insurance company isn't on your side. They're trying to end your case in as cheap and profitable a manner as possible. So how do you know if you should accept the offer? Doing so ends your case- you won't be able to pursue any additional compensation for medical expenses or other needs after accepting the settlement.
The bad news is that you probably don't have the experience needed to make a truly informed decision. The good news is that our North Carolina workers' compensation lawyers certainly do.
We've been practicing in this field for decades. This means we understand both what a case might be worth and what your probability of success is. These are the two crucial variables when deciding whether an offer is fair.
Let our lawyers look over the offer and make you a recommendation based on our ample experience with the workers' compensation system.
