When dealing with workers’ compensation claims, settlement is often in the best interest of the injured worker and the insurance carrier. Importantly, settlement allows injured workers to move on with their lives and no longer be at the mercy of the insurance carrier when seeking medical attention or waiting for a weekly benefits check. However, determining the settlement value of your claim can be confusing, and individuals are frequently uncomfortable with the negotiating process. Thus, you may want to consider speaking with an attorney to determine the value of your workers’ compensation claim and to negotiate a settlement on your behalf. If you would like to discuss a settlement offer made by the workers’ compensation carrier, contact Atlanta workers’ comp attorney Brian Sumrall at (404) 857-3835.
