so the WC carrier gave me a few weeks pay and then we settled for 5k, w/o attorney, i know, Dumb... but now they have put a lien in to the negligent party's carrier for the amount they paid to me and the dr's. ($15000) So If Erie is calling me to try and settle the P&S claim, and sent me an authorization form to see the medical records and settles with for lets say, 3000, all that goes to the WC carrier? Why would I make a deal with the WC Carrier? Because they would get the first 15,000 of what I recover? How could I make money from the settlement then?
