3 t hings you can do to ensure a smooth workers' compensation settlement 

An injured worker is not required to accept an insurance company's payment for hospital bills, disability payments or lost wages under workers comp law. The worker can pursue a monetary settlement as an alternative. The settlement process can be time consuming, stressful, and cause years of over-inflated experience mods for you, the business owner
Here's what you should know about the settlement process to help expedite the paperwork, maintain an amicable relationship with your employee, and reduce your lawsuit anxiety.
First, it's important to know what can be included in a settlement
  • Medical bills, emergency transportation, surgery, physical therapy, etc
  • Disability payments that can vary depending on the type of injury and its severity.
  • Lost wages and future loss of wages. Lost wages are dictated by California law at a weekly rate (2/3 of pretax gross income with a maximum of $1,215 per week). Future wage loss can be fiercely debated depending on the extent of injury, person's age, etc.
  • Pain and suffering can be included if presented with allegations of employer negligence.
  • Attorney fees. The longer a settlement is drawn out - the higher this amount becomes.

Contact Andrew Dyba at 530-662-9181 or andrewd@wsrins.com for assistance with your insurance needs.
If you do not inform employees of their workplace rights, you may be subject to lawsuits and fines.
