My wife has a WC case that is 390 weeks old. VA allows 500 week maximum for indemnity payments.
We are considering a C&R Settlement of 300k +. There is no MSA as she does not have enough SS credits. She is 59.
There is another disability carrier that will step in once settlement is completed.
I have researched this relationship between the WC settlement and the other disability provider and found this statement:
"C&R settlements are the only type of settlement that allows you to insert language into the settlement document that may avoid or limit how much credit the disability provider may take."
[LIST][*]Is that statement correct?[*]If so, who determines the amount between future medical and indemnity?[*]Can we insist (since we are making the settlement demand) that all or a large majority of the settlement be designated as future medical?
