Buyout/Lump Sum Settlements Buyout

Buyout/Lump Sum Settlements Buyout

When a disabled individual’s claim has become what many companies call “stable and mature,” the insurance company may seek to buyout (settle) the claim for something less than its total value.  There are administrative costs to an insurance company to monitor the claim, which includes the annual process (or more often) of collecting claimant information, additional opinions from attending physicians, and other administrative functions.  For this reason, an insurance company will attempt to take advantage of a claimant and offer a lump sum, which at first may look quite attractive to the disabled individual.  We recommend that individuals in this situation have their disability buyout offer reviewed by an experienced attorney who can offer advice on the reasonableness of the offer presented by the insurance company and to negotiate a better deal.
