In many cases, an insurer and injured worker will agree to settle a case through a Lump Sum Settlement. This one-time payment is made in place of weekly compensation checks and certain other benefits. Under the workers' compensation law, employers with an experience modification that could be affected by the settlement must give a written consent for the settlement between the insurer and the employee.
