WEST VIRGINIA OFFICES OF THE INSURANCE COMMISSIONER REQUEST FOR SETTLEMENT REVIEW INSTRUCTIONS: Please read this entire form carefully. In accordance with the provisions of W. Va. Code §23-5-7, the Insurance Commissioner may review any workers' compensation settlement entered into by an unrepresented claimant, and may declare any such settlement void if the Insurance Commissioner determines the settlement to be unconscionable pursuant to the criteria set forth in Title 85, Series 12 of the Code of State Regulation. If you were represented by an attorney in the settlement of your workers' compensation claim(s), the Insurance Commissioner may NOT review or set aside the settlement. All settlements of workers' compensation claims are presumed not to be unconscionable, and you bear the burden of proving that your settlement was unconscionable before the Insurance Commissioner may void your settlement. Criteria to be considered by the Insurance Commissioner in determining whether a settlement is unconscionable include, but are not limited to: The relative position of the parties involved in the settlement at the time the settlement was entered into; The adequacy of the bargaining position of the parties at the time the settlement was entered into; The meaningful alternatives available to the claimant at the time the settlement was entered into; The existence of specific unfair terms in the settlement agreement; The nature of the entire agreement; Whether the claimant was provided ample opportunity to read and review the settlement agreement and/or whether the settlement agreement was read to the claimant; g. Whether the claimant was not informed of his ability to obtain a lawyer to assist in the review of the agreement; h. Whether any of the material terms of the settlement agreement were not conspicuous; i. The percentage of total benefits provided for under the settlement terms which have actually been received by the claimant when the claimant requested the settlement be reviewed; and j. The time that has elapsed between the time the settlement was entered into and the time the claimant requested the settlement be reviewed. PLEASE PROVIDE THE INFORMATION REQUESTED BELOW.
