Settling a North Carolina Workers' Compensation Claim
North Carolina Workers' Comp Attorney
When filing for workers' compensation benefits, it is important to find a knowledgeable North Carolina workers' compensation lawyer who can help you effectively settle your claim. There are many ways in which a person may choose to settle his or her claim, and some situations may even require litigation, so an experienced attorney can help you determine which of those ways is best suited for your specific needs and situation.
Types of Settlements
There are different ways to "settle" a worker's compensation claim. One type of settlement is called a compromise settlement agreement, also known as a "clincher" agreement. By signing a clincher agreement, you essentially give up all rights to future workers' compensation benefits in exchange for one lump sum of money.
Another type of settlement agreement is completed on Industrial Form 26A. If you choose to file this form, your workers' compensation case may remain open, but you will be giving up certain rights, and the rights you retain will be limited in time.
