In the aftermath of a devastating workplace injury, it's not unusual for you to receive a cash settlement offer from the insurance company. For the insurance company, a settlement is a chance to close a case quickly and receive a measure of cost certainty from a claim. This is very good for the insurance company.
Is accepting the settlement offer you received a good idea for you though? Well, it might be. There are times when the insurance company makes a fair offer that represents good value for your claim and will cover your relevant expenses. In these cases, accepting the settlement can help speed the process and simplify your claim.
However, it's important to remember that the insurance company is looking out for itself and its shareholders, not you. Insurance companies have a long and documented history of attempting to minimize payments to victims of serious injury. Just because your injury took place at work doesn’t guarantee they’ll treat you with the respect you deserve. Before you accept any offer made by an insurance company, talk to our Raleigh workers’ comp attorneys. We will review your offer, discuss all of your options, and help you choose that which will give you the best outcome.
