an agreement to resolve or otherwise settle outstanding issues in a workers’ compensation case. In most instances, a lump sum of money is paid to an injured worker to compensate him/her for disability, loss of use or disfigurement. In the overwhelming number of cases a C&R is a full and complete settlement of all claims, including future medical. A C&R can be tailored made to fit the circumstances of each case. A C&R is often referred to as a “settlement”.
