    Question Is There a Limit on WC Settlement

    does anyone know if there is a limit on how much an employer's insurance company can pay out as a settlement? This is for a herniated disc in the neck? 7 months passed since injury and still not fully recovered. Also the case was closed at the time the discs were discovered (2 months after slip and fall accident at work) and is now pending a hearing to be reopen but we are negotiating a settlement to pay the bills and missed time from work.

    Anyone out there has done a settlement in AZ? how long does it take and is there a process with ICA or only between the attornies?

    no.
    when they are responsible for medical treatment there can be no limit as to how expensive it can get.

    there is no time limit as issues and medical events often change the situation.
    settlements have to be approved by the ICA.
