workman comp & 3rd party lawsuit in florida
#1
hey people I had my leg crushed at work by a 1000 lb steel beam. my 3rd party is another const. on the same job.my lawyer is saying my case is being hurt because of my past tax returns. i hadn't worked much for 3 year before i got hurt. Doctor have told me that my knee will never bend & my ankle the same. So i'm crippled for life. i'm 47 [was 45 when i got hurt]. ???? are HOW MUCH CAN WORKCOMP GET BACK FOR MEDICAL BILLS ? IF I SETTLE COMP BEFORE 3RD PARTY SUIT WILL COMP WAIT TILL THAT IS DONE BEFORE THEY PAY ? IS THERE A LIMIT ON MONEY WORKCOMP HAS TO PAY ?

generally comp is able to recoup all their costs.
it's unusual for comp to settle prior to 3rd party.
if they do the amount is significantly less.
no limit.
