This is the final stage in the process. Once you have reached an end of healing, both sides may begin to talk about a possible settlement. However, it is important to keep in mind that the two sides may not come to an agreement. If this occurs, we will go to court and fight for the benefits you deserve.
When people think of court, they often think of a large room that is intimidating and filled with lots of people. In Workers Compensation, “court” is actually referred to as an administrative law hearing. More often than not, this room consists of the judge, his or her court reporter, the attorney for the insurance company, your attorney, and you. It is a relatively small room and there is no jury.
This scenario is much less intimidating than most people expect, and our attorneys will be handling the majority of the talking so you can sit back and let us do the work for you. Anything that you’ll have to do while in court will be gone over with you ahead of time so you know exactly what to expect. We do everything we can to make the entire experience as simple and stress free as possible for you.
We always fight as hard as possible to get you the maximum amount of money possible in your situation. If we can’t get that in a settlement we will recommend going in front of a judge to make our case. It is always, of course, your decision on whether or not to accept any settlement offer or to go to court. We will be with you every step of the way through the workers compensation settlement process to help you make the best decision possible.
Rest assured that the attorneys at Hickey & Turim, S.C. are extremely experienced when it comes to settlement offers and court. We promise to do all that we can to get you everything that you deserve!
