Protect Your Interests When Negotiating A Settlement
If you have been injured on the job, do not assume that you will be treated fairly. Your employer may not properly advise you of your rights, and the insurance company that provides coverage to your employer may deny or limit the compensation you are entitled to receive.
The insurance company may argue that you have faked or exaggerated the extent of your injuries. A doctor may even tell you that you are able to return to work without restrictions when you know you are not physically able to return to work.
If you have suffered a work-related injury or illness, protect your rights. Contact me, Manuel Gonzales, an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer. Call my firm, Manuel Gonzales, PC, at 866-517-1689 to schedule a free consultation with me, a Spanish-speaking attorney, at my Houston office.
What You Need To Know About Lump-Sum Settlements
You may be able to obtain a lump-sum settlement if you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. You may be able to elect a lump-sum payment if you have returned to work for at least three months and you are earning at least 80% of your average weekly wage (Texas Workers’ Compensation Act Section 408.128).
In addition, taking a lump-sum payment could impact your right to other supplemental benefits. Consult with me today to learn more.
