When should you settle your Workers’ Compensation case, and when should you go to trial?

Every case is different. However, if you are happy with the money offered, all the medical bills are paid, and you are certain you will not have future medical problems then you should settle your case.

Work Comp trials will result in an award from the Arbitrator for your injury, your time off work and your medical bills.

A trial will also provide you with the possibility of future medical coverage.

Future medical treatment can be very valuable.

Workmans compensation trials do take longer than a settlement, but they are often the only way to get all your bills paid, or to get full value, or obtain future medical.
