Question:I have been asked to settle my first responder workers’ compensation claim, what should I do?
At Oliver and Fox, we are often contacted by Florida first responders who have been approached by their employer or the insurance company and asked to settle their case or their claim. This is because many first responders from Florida have long-standing or open claims for several years. You must be very careful when you are approached with this question, as many times the employer or the insurance company is going to request that you resign or retire or separate as part of that settlement. That can have a very negative implication on other benefits that may be available to you.Settlement is a very good option in certain situations. We definitely recommend that you contact us at Olive and Fox to assist you in this stage of your case and your claim and hopefully maximize the benefits and protect your career as best as possible.
