Just out of curiousity, we actually did get a workers comp settlement loan of 8K when were certain that we were about to settle in a couple months. Well ofcourse it wound up being a couple years. Now we owe an astronomical amount to these crooks and they wont negotiate at all. If we pay them the full amount they want we will get nearly nothing in the end of a 4 year old case of Permanent & Total disability. Is there anything we can do? I have actually read quite a few of the statutes and noticed that the attorny is required to hand the money directly to us. If thats the case can we hold the money ransom untill they negotiate? Or just not pay them at all as I am very pissed of at their greed and willing to fight fire with fire.
