    It is not at all unusual for a workers' compensation attorney to collect a fee outside of a lump sum settlement. But, as indicated above, be guided by the fee agreement that you signed.

    Unless you are in a union with a collective bargaining agreement that provides otherwise, you are likely at the mercy of the employer and whatever criteria they have set forth in the handbook with regard to health insurance and other fringe benefits.

    As a City of Philadelphia employee, you are likely receiving what is known as Regulation 32 benefits, rather than Pennsylvania Workers' Compensation benefits. This is a bargained-for benefit unique to CIty workers, It provides for benefits similar to workers' comp benefits but with some important distinctions, such as amount of benefits and the right to choose your own doctor. You can get additional information on it from your union or at this web site: http://www.phila.gov/personnel/webregs/...

    "Can the carrier still insist on a resignation. . .?" In a settlement, any party can insist on anything. The question really is whether you have enough leverage to get the carrier or employer to remove the resignation requirement. As has been suggested by other responses, it would be unwise to finalize this settlement without having it reviewed by an experienced workers' compensation attorney.
