Two types of Order Improving Settlements In Workers’ Compensation Cases

Workers Compensation Attorneys Protecting the Rights of Employees in Pennington, Lawrence, East Windsor, Ewing and across Mercer County, NJ

There are two types of settlements in a workers’ compensation court. We have what is called an order-approving settlement and an order-approving settlement with section 20. If there are issues as to causation, jurisdiction, liability, there is an agreement that the parties can reach, – it is called the section 20 resolution because that is the section of the workers’ compensation statute which allows parties to negotiate a resolution, which upon payment of an award dismisses the case with prejudice. It is without accepting liability on the part of the insurance carrier/employer and then it allows the injured employee to receive some money, thus not requiring them to go to trial in which they can receive no money at all.
