Seeking Settlement Info - CALI - JJLoersh - 01-07-2008

I am reaching out for settlement advice for California.

I'm nearing settlement, and want to try to make an informed decision on what to accept...any advice on how to evaluate the offer -- and what to expect in the process -- would be greatly appreciated. We are pretty stressed out here...

What is "life" considered in California...how many years? Any Experts out there?

Thank you,

JJ

the length of one's life differs depending on age.

you can look at how social security evaluates it here

you might want to review the factsheet on permanent disability before deciding about "settlement"

p.s. you should be clear as to what you mean by "settlement"; it may not mean what you are assuming it does.

Hi JJ,

Are you able to give more details, Did someone pass away because of a work related injury?
