No thats the problem. We have not seen a dime of the settlement. There is a small amount having to do with the estate that should be coming very soon. The larger portion that was awarded is all in escrow due to wc. That is our distress.
I do not know your situation. Normally, the funds are distributed to the client, with the full lien remaining in escrow until the numbers can be negotiated, unless in your case the lien is equal to or exceeds the recovery. Ask for that meeting so you can understand what is going on. Since you are represented by an attorney, it would not be appropriate for me to give an online opinion as I do not have the facts of your situation available to me and I would not want to interfere with that relationship.
