What is a full commutation?

In a workers’ compensation case, a full commutation is a type of settlement. Under a full compensation, the victim is given a lump sum payment of all future benefits.

The risk of a full commutation is that it ends an employee’s rights to future benefits. This type of settlement, however, must be approved by the workers’ compensation commissioner.
