Here are some things to really think about if you are being offered a Workers’ Comp settlement or ‘clincher’ in North Carolina, or you are otherwise considering a workers’ compensation settlement.
Is your medical recovery complete?
You should NOT consider settling your case until you know that further medical treatment cannot improve your condition – that you have reached your Maximum Medical Improvement (MMI). MMI essentially means the doctors have made a complete diagnosis and prognosis for you. They know what your injuries are and have a treatment plan. While continued medications and medical treatment can help, you know that no different types of medications or different treatments will work any better.
