Negotiating A Workers’ Comp Lump-Sum Payment
In many workers’ compensation cases, a lump-sum payment may be the best option for meeting the needs of a family or the worker. If a worker died in a workplace accident or if a worker’s on-the-job injury caused permanent disability, you can make an application for a lump-sum payment.

At the Eley Law Firm in Denver, we have been protecting the rights of injured workers in Colorado for more than 30 years. Workers’ compensation laws are complex and confusing. Attorney Cliff Eley guides workers and their families through the legal process to assure that they are receiving all the benefits to which they are entitled.
Lump-Sum Payments Are Available Six Months After The Date Of Injury Or Death
Six months after the workplace accident, injured workers or their survivors can file an application for lump-sum benefits. It is important to know all the available benefits so that you will not settle for less than your workers’ compensation benefits are worth.
An injured worker must have a permanent disability to qualify for a lump-sum payment. For many workers and their families, the lump-sum payment can put an end to dealing with the insurance carrier and provide an opportunity to move on after a devastating injury.
