Settling Your Claim
Settling Your Claim
A common question regarding Pennsylvania workers’ compensation claims is whether you can settle your case in exchange for a lump sum. Settling your case for a lump sum is an option under Pennsylvania workers’ compensation laws. Because employers and insurers are not required to consent to a settlement, the agreement between you and the employer/insurer is entirely voluntary. Most companies, however, are typically interested in settling workers’ compensation claims, as it releases them from the financial and legal burdens once and for all.

When deciding whether a lump sum settlement is best for you or whether the amount offered is fair, you should consult a workers’ compensation attorney for expert guidance. If you are considering settling your claim, are unsure about your case, or have been denied benefits, call Ross & Ross at (814) 274 – 8612.  Let our experienced attorneys fight for the compensation you have earned.
