Is There A Danger Of Getting Less Than What An Insurance Company Initially Offered At Trial?
Is it possible to get less when my workers’ comp case goes to trial?
If you go to trial, it’s always possible to lose and therefore end up with less than what you were offered.
The offer is a compromise on both sides, because the insurance company could wind up not owing you anything. On the other hand, you may prevail and they may owe you a lot more than what they initially offered.
These types of cases and situations require a great deal of judgment and experience on the part of your workers’ compensation lawyer. They also require a lot of thought from the employee, because everyone’s situation is different; what might be best for one person may not be the best for another person.
