We’re starting the day with a settlement hearing – one of our favorite things!  This settlement of over $104,000.00 kicks off a run of hearings for Phalen clients this week.  The claimants who are settling in the next couple of days will see combined compensation topping $166,000.00!  This morning’s settlement hearing is on behalf of an injured worker who came to us with a prior offer from the insurance carrier.  They were hoping to close out his claim for $62,000, but after hiring our firm, William L. Phalen went to work MAXIMIZING the claimant’s case value and today his claim is settling for $104,000.00.  That’s over 65% increase in the value of his case.  Don’t let big insurance short change your compensation!
