How are workers’ comp settlement amounts determined?

Categories: Lawyer Blog Posts.

We’re frequently asked by new clients about the value of their workers’ compensation cases. The reality is, every case and client is unique, so a lawyer can’t assign a value without investigating several key factors. There are various factors that affect how much a workers’ compensation claim will be.

How much your case is worth depends on the specific details of your case, including:

– Your average weekly pay
– Your ability to return to work
– The circumstances of your injury or illness
– The cost of ongoing authorized medical care
