Do Not Settle Your Workers' Comp Case before Watching This!

If you're considering settling your workers' compensation case, there are a lot of other issues you need to consider.  If you're a union member and you've got a collective bargaining agreement; if you're covered by a pension agreement; if you've applied for and are receiving Social Security disability; or if you're Medicare eligible, these and many other issues may have an impact on the wisdom of settling the case and certainly may have an impact on the size of your settlement.  Before you settle your workers' compensation case, read Chapter 12, "Settling Your Claim" in The Wounded Worker.
