The Value of Your Workers’ Compensation Claim
A number of factors affect the value of a workers’ compensation settlement, even if the injuries sustained by workers are remarkably similar. Those factors include:
The injured worker’s weekly compensation rate (obviously, the higher the rate, the higher the recovery).
The number of weeks of benefits paid before the case is resolved (in most cases, involving a total and permanent disability recovery, the insurance company receives a credit for all weekly benefits paid prior to the resolution of the case).
Whether the standard 500 weeks cap applies (lifetime disability benefits can be recovered if the injured worker has sustained a physical brain injury or has some degree of paralysis due to his work injury).
Whether the injured worker’s future medical coverage is part of the final monetary settlement.
Workers’ Compensation and Statutory Limits
In general, there are statutory caps on what can be recovered in a workers’ compensation case and there is no recovery allowed for intangible damages, such as pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life.
The following is a list of settlements and awards obtained by Joye Law Firm’s South Carolina workers’ compensation lawyers. The results listed are provided to be representative of the types of work injury cases the law firm has experience handling. These results should not be considered as a description or characterization of the quality of the law firm’s work and in no way should be interpreted as a guarantee of a specific result for a potential case.
The value of every workers’ compensation claim is determined based on specific factual and legal circumstances. Some of the numerous factors impacting the amount of a workers’ compensation recovery are addressed in the first paragraph above.
Joye Law Firm is proud of the results our South Carolina workers’ compensation attorneys have achieved, but prior results should not and cannot be relied on to create any expectation about what can be recovered for a client in a subsequent case.
