Nebraska Attorney Robert Moodie talks about settlements in Worker's Compensation Cases

Lump Sum Settlement

I'm Bob Moodie from Friedman Law Offices in Lincoln, Nebraska. Thank you for visiting our blog. We hear a lot of questions about settlements in Workers' Compensation cases. If you are thinking about a settlement in your case here on some things you know.

Nebraska Attorney Robert Moodie Will my Worker's Compensation Case go to Court?

People will often ask us if their workers' compensation case will have to go to court. That's a question that will have to be answered on a case by case basis. Often times we are able to accumulate the evidence necessary to convince the employer or insurance company to voluntarily pay the workers' comp benefits that are due. But unfortunately one of the terrible truths about W/C is that the insurance company doesn't have to pay anything unless a Judge tells them they have to. If you cannot convince the insurance company to pay, your only alternative is to file your case in the Workers' Compensation Court and let the judge make a decision.
