Negotiating Workers’ Compensation Settlements for Permanent Disabilities

Consult a St. Lucie County Workers’ Compensation Lawyer
St. Lucie County Workers' Compensation LawyerObtaining workers’ compensation benefits can be a stressful process, especially if you are injured in such a way that your ability to continue with your job responsibilities is impacted. For some, job retraining will not always provide the financial return in the long run as the job where injuries were sustained.

Sustaining an injury at work can have a serious impact on a person, especially if they are no longer able to do the job they once did. It may be a good idea to enlist the help of a workers compensation lawyer in St. Lucie FL during this complicated and confusing process. You will want to be sure that you take the appropriate next steps when it comes to negotiating a workers’ compensation benefits package. An attorney from the Law Offices of Franks, Koenig & Neuwelt can assist you with this process.

Workers’ Compensation Benefits
You will want to carefully consider any offer from your company’s workers compensation insurance company before accepting it. Once you agree to accept payments or a lump sum for workers’ compensation, you will no longer be able to take legal action in the form of a lawsuit.

You may feel pressured to accept the offer that has been presented; you may feel worried about your employer’s response if you do not quickly accept. In the meantime, you may need the benefits in order to afford medical treatment and you do not have an income in the meantime.

The reality is that if you have been permanently disabled from your injury, you should strongly consider consulting a workers compensation lawyer in St. Lucie FL from the Law Offices of Franks, Koenig & Neuwelt. This is especially true if you are unable to return to your job due to the accident. An attorney from our firm can help you determine if the settlement or payment offer is in your best interest to accept. One of our attorneys can negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf to obtain a higher settlement.

The Settlement Negotiation Process
Insurance companies can be challenging to deal with; the more serious a worker’s injury, the more likely they will deny the claim in order to save them a substantial amount of money. A workers compensation lawyer in St. Lucie FL from our firm has the experience necessary to successfully negotiate with the insurance adjusters so that you can receive the maximum amount of compensation. Your attorney will take into account several factors when determining a settlement including:

  • All hospital expenses (past, present, and future)
  • Lost wages
  • Future Lost wages
  • Attorney fees

A Workers Compensation Lawyer in St. Lucie FL Who Can Make a Difference
With the trusted guidance of an attorney, you can make informed decisions. This can be a huge relief for people who have been injured because it gives them the time to heal and recover while their attorneys manage the stress of dealing with insurance company negotiations.

Coming to terms with an injury that has a permanent impact on the life you once knew can take some time. In addition, suffering physically and financially can take a toll on a person. A St. Lucie County workers’ compensation lawyer can help ensure the best possible outcome given your situation. By retaining the assistance of a workers compensation lawyer in St. Lucie FL from the Law Offices of Franks, Koenig & Neuwelt, you can have a brighter future.

My husband was hurt and never dealt with an attorney before. He looked up attorneys online & thru the grace of God got Lissa Dorsey as his attorney & she was truly amazing! She was very involved, always returned our phone calls & made the whole process as easy for us as she possibly could while my husband treated with Dr's and started his healing process. I would recommend her to any & everyone without a doubt.
