    Not sure of what you mean.
    If you've received all money due to you, why do you think you get a settlement?

    You better consult a lawyer and find out what you're really entitled to and keep these guys honest.

    Where did you get that info?

    They are liable for medical until you heal 100% or settle the medical side of your claim..
    They are liable for wage loss based on the percentage of impairment once you reach MMI.
    Sounds like they paid out the wage side of your claim, the only thing left is medical.
    I'm guessing based on the little info you've posted.

    Again, talk to a lawyer and get the lowdown, this isn't anything to be guessing at.

    We can't answer a question that makes zero sense, I have no idea of where you get this three year limit or what you're asking.

    No, insurance companies don't like buying anything - they'd rather screw you out of it.
    Do as you wish, if it where me, I'd consult a lawyer.
