Can I be forced to settle my case?

By: Glen Wieland

settling a case


When it comes to a workers’ compensation accident, there are some situations where an adjuster might continuously call you asking about settling your case. Know that you cannot be forced into settling your case at any point and your benefits will still apply even if you don’t settle, as long as you get treatment from an authorized doctor at least one time per year. Your adjuster, lawyer and workers compensation judge cannot force you to settle your case at any point.  All settlements in workers’ compensation cases must be voluntary and agreed upon by both you and the insurance company.
