Re: Do You Have to Pay Workers Comp Back
If you win a third party action, for the same work related injury you are collecting comp, the carrier would have subrogation rights.
The only part of your action that would be exempt, would be money for pain and suffering.
I would say, yes, the carrier will file a lien against your settlement.
You can't collect wage loss and medical from two sources for the same injury, that's called "double dipping"
