questions to ask attorney about an offered settlement
1171 Wrote:H i the state I live in is Arkansas
In order to determine what benefits are being settled and therefore what value is placed on them depends a lot on what state laws you are under.
you didn't indicate a location in your profile; what jurisdiction is your claim under?
there are general questions you should ask if you don't know your state's work comp laws:
are you settling future medical treatment?
can you reopen the claim later?
what type/amount of fees are deducted from the settlement (including atty fees and/or costs)
what if it doesn't settle?
how long does the process take?
can you return to work for the employer?
there may be more specific questions that are relevant to the system and laws in your state but until we know that all i can do is give generic ones.
