4-6 Weeks is a General Guideline for Workers’ Compensation Settlements
Generally, it will take 4-6 weeks from the time the agreement is reached until there is money in your hands. Once the settlement is reached, the employers’ attorney will need to draft the settlement papers.
The contracts are then signed by the attorneys and the employee and then submitted to the Magistrate handling the matter for approval. This process can take a few weeks by the time checks are mailed out
