I need help understanding what happens with medicare and/or social security set aside. My claims has settled but the C&R has not yet been sent for the judges signature. My attorney says that they are waiting for defense attys to receive something from medicare and/or SS. Does this mean that i will not receive part of my settlement amount? for example - if the settlement is for $250k - does this mean that the govt will take all but about $125k? Can someone please help me with this because my attorney will not help. I am in the state of California.
