Compromise And Release
I have been reading a lot about different types of settlements here. Is the Compromise And Release one that varies by state, or is that an option in all states?

RE: Compromise And Release
Fencer,
Here is a link to the C&S form used in California.

http://74.125.95.132/search?q=cache:_jh5...cd=3&gl=us

Basically, through a compromise agreement, it releases your employer of any further liabilty to your injury. The settlement is usually a bit higher because you cut off the possibility of any future medical.

It is a good way to go if your injury is not life altering, but that is a decision only you can make.

What Jayne said is true. Most employers will only agree to a C&S if you resign or retire. They don't want to take responsibility for any other injuries, and the C&S only releases them from the original injury.

Hope this helps. And, I believe it is basically the same in every State. C&S is a common term used in all insurance claims, not just W/C.

Let Go, and Let God......

RE: Compromise And Release
"compromise and release" has a specific legal meaning and is state specific.
Many states have similar legal agreements that go by different names.
others don't allow them.

Thanks for the replies, I was terminated from my job on the very day that dr said I could not lift more than 10 lbs for the rest of my life (my job was basically being the company "BULL". I live in Mass. and the state website does not offer much info beyond the basics. This forum is a great resource (long time reader).
