The process for continuing to receive workers' compensation benefits can be unappealing for people who suffer long-term injuries. In such cases, it may make sense to finalize a workers' compensation case, accept a lump-sum payment and move on. But it is critical to make sure the process is handled by a knowledgeable workers' compensation attorney.
If you live in or near Staten Island, you can rely on the law firm of Angiuli & Gentile, LLP, to explain your rights and explore the possibility of a Section 32 settlement. We have more than 30 years of experience handling legal issues that affect injured New York workers, including workers' compensation, personal injury and Social Security Disability (SSD).
Maximizing Your Section 32 Settlement
Your settlement does not have to close your entire claim. Depending on your specific situation, there may be a reason to leave part of your claim open. While it may make sense to give up your right to all future benefits in exchange for a lump-sum settlement now, it may make more sense to leave your medical benefits claim open in case an ongoing injury worsens and requires additional resources.
The negotiations around these issues are complex and very personal. Our lawyers will take the time to get to know you personally and arrive at a solution that protects your interests now and in the future.
