Big Workers’ Comp Payouts for Clients During the Pandemic

Big Workers’ Comp Payouts for Clients During the Pandemic

The coronavirus pandemic has brought headline after headline of bad news. It can be understandably difficult to keep your head up during these unprecedented times, which is why our team from Morgan & Murphy, LLP wants to share one silver lining we have noticed recently: better workers’ compensation claim payouts.

Our attorneys just negotiated a $200,000 workers’ compensation lump sum settlement for a 61-year-old man with degenerative disc disease. Under normal circumstances, negotiating this much money for our client would be extremely difficult as the defending insurance company would push back as often and as strongly as possible. However, insurers are paying well during the pandemic to close out these cases quickly and keep their attention and finances focused elsewhere. Since courts are either closed or operating on significantly reduced schedules, the insurance companies have been offering good money to settle workers’ compensation cases – and we do not hesitate to take advantage of this current trend when it means benefitting our clients.

While it is unfortunately easy to get lost in the negatives of the pandemic, we think this case serves as a good example that there are still good things out there and that even the worst of times can bring unexpected boons. If you have a workers’ compensation case in New Bedford or the surrounding area in Massachusetts, and you want it fairly settled and quickly, then please call (508) 966-7254 to connect with our attorneys. We accept phone calls 24/7 and can manage cases entirely remotely. However, we are capable of meeting some clients for in-office consultations with heightened sanitation, safety, and social distancing measures. Enquire today.
