The WC Carrier is trying to get paid from the 3rd party carrier as we speak, which Im assuming ends up in the 3rd party paying the claim to the WC Carrier. If the WC Carrier gets reimbursed and the statute of limitations doesnt run out, Then anything I try to get from 3rd party carrier is mine? Or could I negotiate some type of split with the WC Carrier?
As I wrote, I would strongly encourage you to retain an attorney to negotiate for you. These cases are handled on a contingency basis so there is no charge to you, and the involvement of an attorney can really increase your recovery.
