The Benefits Of Settling

While the process is stacked against claimants and the insurance companies will typically do everything they can to deny your benefits, there are instances in which you are able to reach a settlement. Reaching a settlement can be beneficial in a number of ways.

  • Quicker resolution of your case means you will receive your benefits sooner. This can alleviate the stress of meeting your financial obligations.
  • Reaching a settlement also means you will spend less time fighting about your benefits and more time focused on your recovery and not living for your claim.
  • A settlement also gives you some control over the outcome. It is always your decision, not your attorney's decision, on whether to accept a settlement or not. With the appeal process and the court, the decision and outcome are uncertain.
