Re: Personal Injury Settlement and Workers Comp
Sure, drop the comp case.
Is there a way to structure PI claim so that WC will not any rights.
Not really, this isn't a game.
I would think since they snooze they lose that right.
The pain and suffering portion of the PI claim would be exempt from the lien.
I don't get it, what do you want to do - collect twice for the same incident?
Why wouldn't Comp be entitled to reimbursement if you later won your claim after you collected wage loss and medical from the PI claim?
You can't collect twice for the same incident - that's called "double dipping"
