Oregon Workers' Compensation Settlements - What is a Stipulation?


Stipulation (Stipulated Settlement)


A Stipulation is a type of workers' compensation settlement that generally settles a time loss or other benefits dispute, or that confirms a reversal of a workers' compensation denial.  Most importantly, a Stipulation is not a complete settlement of an accepted or denied claim.  In other words, it will not make a claim go away.  Rather, it resolves a small portion of a claim - a dispute within a claim, not the whole claim.

Oregon Workers' Compensation Settlements - What is a Disputed Claim Settlement (DCS)?


Disputed Claim Settlement (DCS)


A DCS is a type of Oregon workers' compensation settlement that is used to settle out a denied workers' compensation claim.  Essentially, a DCS means the injured worker (and their attorney) accepts a lump sum of money in exchange for the denial remaining final.  A DCS is most commonly used when the insurer has denied a workers' compensation claim and the denial has been appealed.  This creates the "disputed claim."

Claim Disposition Agreement (CDA)


A CDA is a type of workers' compensation settlement that settles out an accepted workers' compensation claim. Basically, a CDA consists of a lump sum paid to the injured worked in exchange for giving up his or her future benefits under their accepted claim. The settlement thus "disposes of" the accepted claim.
