I am interested in getting information from an informed person involved in litigation of death settlements from workers comp. MY father was killed as a worker at a utah mine. Rio TInto now buying this mine is looking to clear there books of this monthly disbursement to my mother. I am wondering what if any economist involved would consider as crucial info in determining the value of this settlement. I have currently hired a local attorney but am in limbo for a few more days or weeks with my mother and it would be nice to have any if an educated person could give in this regard.
