Home > Articles > Good News For Injured Workers Who Received Lump Sum Payments

We at Paramount Law often warn people who sustained injuries in the workplace to avoid signing anything or accepting any offers off the bat.

Why? Because it is important to consider the severity of injuries or illness in order to determine the amount of compensation due to you. Most companies don't have the capacity to foresee the various probabilities and financial burdens that an injury can bring about, which is why it is important to go see a specialist in personal injury law.

When you accept your company's offer without having a specialist in personal injury insurance overseeing it first, you run the risk of future complications. It is not uncommon for a condition to deteriorate and require additional financial resources to handle.

If you have received a lump sum for your injury and it has been used to pay for medical costs and or modifications to your home or car, and your condition suddenly deteriorates, you will have to face the financial burden alone. At least, that's how it used to work.
