Workers' Comp Settlements Lawyer in Atlanta
Is accepting a settlement the right action to take?
Being injured on the job in a workplace accident can bring about many questions and concerns regarding workers' compensation. A common question is whether you should ask for or accept a settlement for your injuries. There are a number of factors that should be considered before you make a decision. Accepting a settlement rather than receiving weekly benefits may leave you in a difficult economic situation should the money run out and you are still unable to work. You could also continue to require medical care and be unable to pay for it. On the other hand, if you accept a lump sum settlement, you will be able to use the money now as opposed to waiting for it week after week.
An Atlanta workplace injury attorney should be contacted before you agree to sign anything. You need to understand all of your options and the consequences your decision may bring. Requesting a settlement may be the optimum action to take in your situation. A qualified lawyer should be consulted, who is familiar with all of the laws concerning
workers' compensation and
workers' comp benefits
, to see to it that you are not taken advantage of.
