Obtaining Fair Value For Your Workers’ Comp Claim
Most people know that they must file for workers’ compensation if injured on the job. Sometimes, new claims can get stuck in all the red tape, or employers may seek to settle older claims once and for all.
In such cases, you want a strong advocate on your side. Crowley Ahlers & Roth regularly helps injured or disabled workers in Cincinnati with settling new and old workers’ compensation claims. We aim to ensure you receive the full value of your claim, whether paid out in installments or in a lump sum.
Why Settle My Workers’ Comp Claim?
Those who wish to settle a workers’ compensation claim do so for many reasons. Some of our clients simply tire of the aggravation of dealing with the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation or with a self-insured employer and would prefer to put the claim behind them and to move on from their injury.
It may also be that you’re being pressured to end your benefits by your employer, which may seek to offer you a lump-sum payment instead of continuing to pay for your benefits. In such cases, our lawyers can help you quantify what your continued costs of care will be. If necessary, we will draw on analysis from your medical team, vocational specialists and other experts to develop your claim.
We will then negotiate on your behalf with your employer and the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation. All parties must agree to the settlement in order for it to take effect. Our attorneys have decades of experience obtaining settlements where everyone walks away satisfied.
Don’t Settle For Less Than You Deserve
If you have received notice of a termination of benefits, or you wish to explore your options for getting a pay-out, we invite you to contact our firm at 513-549-4971. We work diligently to ensure you do not settle for less than you deserve.
