    Answered . CCP 998 is not something that applies to workers' compensation. It has to do with offers being made to settle. If tthe defendant makes a 998 offer and you refuse it and then the case goes to trial and you get less than the offer, you have to pay the other side's costs. Again, this does not apply to workers' compensation.
