Will be willing to accept a certain amont at one time if I agreed to it how can I do this expecting a settlement from workers compensation without them adding a lien on my settlement check and taking the entire amount owed? Can an agreement be entered and remain valid even if I'am expecting my settlement to be much more than the initial and original amount owed?
You should find a local attorney to fight this for you. You will need to take your support documents to the consult so the attorney can explain what, why and how things are happening. You probably can't get a better guiding answer on Avvo because no one knows what the documents say, and we can't provide legal advice even if we had the documents in front of us. Again, find a local attorney, do not ignore this.
