Was wondering does the workerscomp take out of your settlements the payments they made to you? Was told that they take out of your settlement what they had payed you in payments! Can someone please tell me if this is true?? I was paid in payments and have been offered a settlement of for a C&R thats is before attorneys fee's! Mind you I had lower back surgery from a job injury and still suffer on a daily basis and may need more surgerys.Did something change over the years because I remember that you never had to pay back workers comp payments out of your settlement at least that was back in 03.
