Understanding Settlements in Pennsylvania for Workers' Compensation Cases

In Pennsylvania, there is no absolute right to a lump-sum settlement in a workers' compensation case. All the insurance carrier is required to do under the law is pay 2/3rds of an injured worker's lost wages and pay for all reasonable and necessary medical treatment related to the work injury. They are not legally obligated to pay you a lump-sum.

That being said, the majority of workers' compensation cases are resolved by a lump-sum settlement paid to the injured worker. This happens when both sides agree that a settlement is in their best interest.

You may be eligible to a lump sum settlement for your work injury. If you have been receiving workers' compensation benefits for an extended period of time, you have reached maximum medical improvement and you are unable to return to your time of injury job because of your permanent restrictions, your case may be ripe for settlement.

To speak with an experienced Pennsylvania workers' compensation attorney about whether your workers' compensation claim is eligible for a lump sum settlement, contact McCormick and Vilushis today. There are no consultation fees and we charge no attorney's fee unless we successfully litigate your case or negotiate a settlement.
