It is specifically understood by and between the Releasor and Releasees that this Release is in no way to be construed as an admission of any wrongdoing or liability on the part of the Releasees. It is expressly warranted by Releasor that no promise or inducement has been offered except as set forth herein; that this Release is executed without reliance on any statement of the Releasees, or their representatives, concerning the nature and extent of the injury(ies), claims of lien and/or legal liability thereof, and that Releasor has fully discussed the terms and significance of this Release with the attorney of their choice and has made the informed, knowing and voluntary decision to execute this Release. The Releasor represents that the terms and conditions of this settlement agreement have been completely read and explained to him by his attorneys and that those terms are fully understood and are voluntarily accepted by him. The Releasor acknowledges and agrees that this Release contains the entire agreement among the parties hereto, and that the terms of this Release are contractual and binding, not merely a recital. Any modification of this Release must be in writing and signed by both Releasor and Releasees. Releasor acknowledges and agrees that this Release shall not be subject to modification. Releasor further understands and agrees that this Release of All Claims shall be construed and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of Florida. Should any Court deem any portion or provision of this Release null or void, the remainder of the Release shall remain in full force and effect. Releasee does/does not waive its subrogation rights under § 440.39. In reaching this agreement, the parties have, pursuant to § 440.15 Florida Statutes, considered the present value of all future payments of monetary compensation, impairment benefits and death benefits potentially payable to the Releasor on account of the accident referenced herein. In arriving at the stipulated settlement amount, the parties have taken into consideration the Releasor's age of , his/her life expectancy of years as established by the United States Life Tables published by the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services and have also used the statutory eight (8) percent discount rate tables. Consideration was also given to the possible loss of supplemental benefits due under § 440.15 Florida Statutes and to the right of the Social Security Administration to offset disability benefits payable under Florida law. The present value of the future compensation herein was discounted sufficiently to take into consideration the Releasees' right to offset compensation benefits due under the Florida Workers' Compensation Act against benefits payable in the past and/or future, on account of total disability under Chapter 42 of the United States Code. Specifically, the parties stipulate that in arriving at the amount of the lump sum settlement, the parties have recalculated the Releasor's weekly compensation rate to be $ . This amount was arrived at by dividing the net workers' compensation lump sum settlement of $ by the Releasor's life expectancy of weeks. In reaching this agreement, the parties have considered that many common medical expenses are not paid or reimbursable under the Federal Medicare program. 2 American LegalNet, Inc. www.FormsWorkflow.com These medical expenses are the responsibility of the Releasees' and are being taken into consideration in the settlement of future medical.
