The state workers' compensation program was established to pay medical benefits and wage replacement to injured employees, and is generally funded through an employer's purchase of an insurance policy. When the time comes to pursue a settlement, you may be met with resistance, either in proving that your injury was received at work, or in recovering the amount you deserve. Your settlement must be large enough to fully cover the costs of medical treatment and to help you support your family during this difficult time. A
Fresno workers' compensation lawyer from our firm can fight to help you secure the settlement you require.
Settlements for Injured Workers in Fresno
There are two primary types of workers' compensation settlement, which differ according to the schedule of payment. You will either receive a compromise and release settlement (C&R), which provides you with a single payment for the full value of your
permanent disability award, or a stipulation with request for award (Stip), which gives you a series of periodic payments. Claiming a settlement can be challenging when there is any opposition from the employer or the insurance company, and if your future livelihood will depend on the benefits you receive, it is in your best interests to retain an attorney from our firm early in the
workers' compensation process.
When you have been injured on the job, contact a Fresno workers' compensation attorney from our firm for experienced legal representation to claim the settlement you deserve.
