Workplace Injury Frequently Asked Questions

WARNING: All of the information provided here is of a general nature only. The specific facts of your case may require a completely different answer. Do not base any decision with respect to your case solely on any of the answers found herein. Prior to making any decision with respect to your case, you should speak with a competent attorney who is familiar with the laws that relate to your case.

Once I agree to settle my case, what happens then? Do I still have to go to Court?

No, the adjuster or opposing attorney will forward a settlement check and release of claims to your attorney who will upon receipt thereof, verify balances of all medical bills and expenses incurred (including attorney’s fees and costs) and prepare and provide you with a settlement statement setting forth the amount of the settlement, total disbursements, and net to you. If a lawsuit was filed with the Court, once the money comes in, your attorney will prepare a Dismissal Order dismissing your lawsuit and he or she will present it to the Court for entry.
