If you’ve been injured on the job, the insurance company may offer you a one-time, lump-sum settlement. It may sound appealing. You may feel frustrated with the overall process and just want to be done with it all. Or maybe your physician has told you he’s done all he can do. But know that once you agree to a settlement offer, you cannot get more money.
It’s best to know all your options upfront. With experienced guidance from McDonald at Law‘s workers’ compensation attorneys, you’ll be prepared to either sign or not sign, depending on your unique circumstances. You can learn more about how we can help you by scheduling a free consultation. Call us now at 717-208-2641 to schedule your free consultation.
Our firm will make sure that the settlement offer is fair, fully covering your current and future expenses for medical treatment, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Our team of workers’ comp lawyers will consult with top medical practitioners to understand the full extent of your necessary treatment and to place a value on your future needs for treatment, including surgeries and long-term care. This is an important step because you will not be able to go back and get additional money.
