This is a question my office receives often with potential clients when thinking about if they should hire counsel or not. The challenge is this depends on many factors:
1. Did the employer have workers compensation insurance coverage?
2. What body part was injured?
3. Were weekly checks received from the insurance company?
4. Is the care ongoing?
5. Is the case catastrophic?
6. What was the rate of pay for the injured worker prior to the work related injury?
All of these question help determine a value range. All of these are factors but they all have a part in determining the value of a workers compensation claim. However other factors not often mentioned are:
Who was your employer? Some employers NEVER settle and you do best to get the care you need an move on either with continued employment or get the care you need and move on to another company or seek training and move to another industry.
