Workers’ Compensation Settlements are known as Compromise and Release Agreements. If you were hurt at work you may be entitled to a lump sum settlement. If you have been collecting workers’ compensation benefits for 4 months or longer you may be entitled to a lump sum settlement. A compromise and Release Agreement is typically a lump sum settlement or a one time payment that can replace your weekly workers’ compensation checks, your medical bills, or both. You can accept a lump sum settlement for both your lost wages and medical expenses.
