C & R question.
If lawyer gets % of total lump sum, and his fee is more than the indemnity due, is the rest of the money all allocated to FMC? I'm not medicare eligible nor plan to be in the foreseable future so I do not need a WCMSA. Shouldn't the lawyer just get the percentage of the indemnity due and not deplete what little FMC money the ER/IC is willing to part with?
If I wait until settlement by stips and the indemnity is paid out and then ask to C&R the FMC pro per, will attorney still be awarded a % of FMC?
I am aware of the consequences of FMC buyout, BVia. I know I must pay for my covered injured parts hereforth until I die or until I am Medicare eligible and have exhausted those dedicated funds spending them only on medical needs for the injured parts.
Thanks for any response.
