Have you been offered a lump sum cash settlement for your Georgia workers’ compensation claim. How can you know if your lump sum offer is a good offer or a low-ball one? If you’re filing for workers’ comp in Georgia and aren’t sure if you should accept a lump sum settlement, read on to learn more.
Before You Accept a Cash Settlement, Talk to Our GA Workers’ Compensation Attorneys
It can be tempting to take a lump-sum cash settlement from an insurance company for a workers’ compensation claim. Dealing with insurance companies can be difficult. These companies will always present a “low ball” settlement offer to an unrepresented worker. They will not pay full value to someone who does not know what the claim is worth. The claims adjuster handling your claim for the insurance company has probably negotiated settlement of hundreds or thousands of workers’ compensation claims. If you don’t have that same experience, let our attorneys examine all the issues and make sure that you get the maximum settlement you deserve. Talk to an experienced workers’ compensation attorney. At Gregory Smith Law, LLC in Augusta, we only practice workers’ compensation law, so we are experts in the field.

Once the settlement agreement is approved, it cannot be appealed.
