Beware. Be very aware if the insurance company is calling you in to talk about a settlement. Remember firstly, the insurance company is about making profits. It isn't interested in helping you. And the adjuster just wants the file off his or her desk. He or she doesn't care about what your needs are.
Secondly, you should be particularly worried if the insurance company controverted you and then wants to settle the claim. They're trying to get you into the office before you have time to talk to an attorney.
Thirdly, Workers Compensation settlements are practically impossible to undo. You will have to live with the results for the rest of your life.
So before you sign a settlement, talk to a Workers Compensation attorney.
