How Is My Work Injury Case Resolved or Settled?

How Is My Work Injury Case Resolved or Settled?  Your case is resolved when there is an agreement between you and the claims administrator or a judge issues an order about your workers’ compensation payments and future medical care that will be provided to you. In order to protect your rights, whether or not you are represented by an attorney, settlements must be reviewed by a workers’ compensation administrative law judge, to determine whether they are adequate.

Workers’ compensation benefits are designed to provide you with the medical treatment you need to recover from your work related injury or illness, partially replace the wages you lose while you are recovering, and help you return to work.
