Workers’ compensation settlements can contain unwelcome surprises
Written by our workers’ compensation lawyers in Virginia Beach
Many workers in Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Norfolk, Portsmouth, and Hampton Roads file for workers’ compensation benefits on their own, and may settle their case without representation. Sometimes in those circumstances, the injured worker finds the terms of the settlement are not exactly as they thought.
For example, medical bills they thought would be paid by the workers’ compensation carrier end up their responsibility, says KRS Law workers’ compensation lawyer Adam Shall. They may also find certain other expenses they incurred due to the work injury will not be reimbursed. The settlement may further affect their entitlement to benefits from other sources.
For nearly 15 years, our KRS Law workers’ compensation lawyers have helped injured workers obtain their rightful, lawful compensation benefits in Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Norfolk, Portsmouth, and all of Hampton Roads.
