  • SETTLEMENT BEFORE QME??

    I filed a WC cumulative trauma claim, no QME yet, is it unusual for the defense to offer a settlement prior to the QME??? And if they are already trying to talk settlement before the medical exam, what do they know that I don't, what am I missing?

    Loc’s Answer

    As my colleagues have stated, it's not unusual to settle your case before a QME. However, I don't recommend that route because more times than not it will be for lesser amount than your final settlement. I highly advise you speak with an experienced attorney regarding your case. Good luck.
