What if my vocation rehabilitation counselor says I can start my own business by settling

Many times, workers are lulled into settling their case for less by vocational rehabilitation counselors who convince them that they could start their own business with money that they receive from settling their workers’ compensation claim.  This is a very dangerous proposal and needs to be considered carefully.  Remember that the vocation rehabilitation counselor is not your best of  friends.  She is being paid by the insurance carrier and her agenda is to try save the insurance company money by getting your benefits terminated—whether by finding you work, by settling your claim for little to nothing, or by terminating your benefits because you refused to cooperate with her.
