What should I know about a lump sum in workers' compensation?

In Massachusetts, workers' compensation benefits can be a complex issue that leaves injured workers wondering how their case will be resolved and when the benefits will commence. After the worker has been hurt or become ill, rather than go through the process of seeking or receiving incremental benefits, some prefer to take a lump sum to settle the case to move forward. When considering this alternative, it is imperative to fully understand all the factors that accompany a lump sum settlement. Before agreeing to anything, it is critical to have legal advice.
