You have rejected the first settlement offer after you were evaluated by doctors for an injury you suffered while at work.  Your attorney will then attempt to renegotiate the settlement with theworkers compensation insurance company in court.  The insurance company may or may not agree to another settlement amount, and the judge may provide input in the negotiation.

You may receive a new offer for settlement.  If you accept that offer, your case would resolve.  If you don’t receive a second offer – or if you reject it – then the matter will have to be resolved by trial.  In that situation, your lawyer would go back to court to see that a trial date is set.

When you are at trial, you will testify regarding the medical problems you are experiencing.  The doctors will provide their medical opinions.  The judge then writes a decision on the judgment that you will receive.  Watch the video to learn more.
