After being injured at work, a common question of injured workers is whether the workers' compensation insurance company will settle once their case is closed. It is rare for an insurance company to simply pay off an injured worker.
Other important questions exist as well. Will this injury be permanent? Will this injury prevent the worker from returning to his or her previous job? Will the injured worker be able to reopen the claim in the future if the injury gets worse?

Injured on the Job in Arizona and Facing Settlement Offers? We Can Help.
Workers' compensation settlements take many different forms. For example, an injured worker could settle for accrued past lost wages due, but not for future lost wages. Further, if an injured worker is close to the age of 65, Medicare is a factor.
It is always best to speak with an attorney before deciding to settle your workers' compensation case. The insurance company wants to pay you as little as possible. The insurance company claims adjuster is not going to tell you all the possible outcomes when offering to settle with you. He or she will not offer alternative options, and certainly will not tell you what the maximum amount your case is worth.
