can someone tell me what they consider when the w/c ins carrier wants to know if you are interested in settleing your case? what do they determine when they or you come up with an amount? is it better for you to come up with the first dollar figure or wait for them to do it? i really dont want to settle, but there comes a time when you just cant do your job any longer without pain 24/7. so if anyone can tell me what all is considered when approached about a settlement would be appreciated. and by the way, i know i am not looking at getting rich or anywhere near close to it, not even considering anything like that, i know the ins carrier is only looking out for themselves, not me.
also, i know this comes with a resignation, would i be able to collect unemployment if i agree on the settlement and the resignation that comes with it?
