CAN I SETTLE MY ARIZONA SCHEDULED DISABILITY AWARD?

| Mar 11, 2016 | Firm News

The answer to this question is “yes”. There is a provision in the Arizona workers’ compensation laws that says an injured worker can petition the Industrial Commission of Arizona to settle a permanent disability award that is being paid on a scheduled basis. What this means is an injured worker that has a knee injury, or an arm injury, or a hand injury, typically a single extremity injury, with a permanent disability may be able to obtain a lump sum settlement up to $25,000. Normally, due to that permanent disability, the injured worker is entitled to a payment of benefits over a period of months.

The one caveat is that the Industrial Commission only has jurisdiction to order settlements of scheduled disability awards up to $25,000.00.

If you have a serious industrial injury that involved a scheduled disability where you’re receiving a check for a period of months and you want a lump sum, please contact our office for a free consultation.
