The insurance company is offering to settle my case, but I’m not sure if their offer is fair? How do I know?

But we are glad to give an opinion about that.
Generally, the insurance companies are going to offer you as little as they can to resolve the case. They know exactly what they’re doing, and you probably don’t know anything about workers’ compensation and what the value of the cases are.
So, you are smart to ask questions and try to find out what the value of your case is, separate from the insurance company is telling you.Wayne L.
