Can I force workers' comp to settle fast?



Published
This video reviews issues with trying to force workers' comp to settle quickly. If you are an injured worker with a California injury, and don’t have an attorney, this video is intended to help provide an overview of workers’ compensation topics so you can better represent yourself.

Many injured workers want to settle quickly. But what if the insurance company doesn't want to? You can't force the insurance company into a C&R. You can push the case to resolution with either Stips or a F&A. But it's not a fast process. Unfortunately, if workers' comp doesn't want to settle fast, you're probably not going to settle fast.

Jeremy Lusk is a certified specialist in workers’ compensation with almost two decades of experience, and previously served as a Judge at the Fresno District Office of the WCAB. He has worked out of Fresno, but appeared at numerous Boards to represent both injured workers and employers/carriers.

No attorney/client relationship is created or implied by this video. This video is not offering legal advice as to what you should, or should not, do in your workers’ compensation case, but rather offers education/information as to the California workers’ compensation system for unrepresented workers so they can better represent themselves and make more informed decisions.
