Work Injury Hurt at Work Lump Sum Settlements

If you suffer a Work Injury and were hurt at work you may be entitled to a Lump Sum Settlement. Here is some basic information to know. If you have questions or concerns about what your case is worth or how much of a Lump Sum Settlement you can get in a Workers' Compensation case contact the work injury lawyers at Dugan & Associates, Lawyers Representing Injured People. 

Keeping it simple there are two basic workers compensation payment scenarios in Pennsylvania if you suffer a work injury. 1. You are getting paid workmens compensation; 2. You are not getting paid workers compensation. Obviously there are subsets of each scenario and every case is different but on it's simplest terms these are the two very basic scenarios.

And, generally speaking, workmens compensation for a work injury pays lost wage benefits or a percentage of your lost wages and makes payment of medical expenses, doctors appointments, testing, medications, physical therapy etc...related to your work injury if you get hurt at work.

Typically a Lump Sum Settlement in workers' compensation for a work related injury involves getting a lump sum of money and in exchange you are giving up your right to either your lost wage payments or your medical benefits for treatment of your work injury or both.

If you are getting paid work comp payments generally a lump sum settlement would involve giving up those rights and giving up those payments in exchange for a lump sum of money. If you are not getting paid for your work injury a lump sum involves giving up the right and opportunity to potentially get any weekly or bi-weekly checks and/or medical payments. You are agreeing in either to give up your rights to payments of benefits under the Pennsylvania Workers' Compensation Act.

The main thing to know is if you are contemplating or are interested in a lump sum settlement for your work injury when you get hurt at work you may be releasing the employer and it's workers' compensation insurance carrier and forever discharging them of any and all liability for ever coming back again for any payment of benefits for your injury under the workers' compensation act in Pennsylvania.
