in 2011 i was injured at work requiring back surgery.i had the surgery, went back to work.i lost vision and now am on soc sec disability. we fell behind on our mortgage and my wife and i had to file chapter 13 bankruptcy in DEC 2013, our bankruptcy lawyer told us from day 1 my work comp settlement was 100% free from the bankruptcy. last week i got the letter from my work comp lawyer saying i would have my settlement check by the end of this month 6/2014, we took it to my bankruptcy lawyer, he called yesterday and we had to meet with him today. today he said the bankruptcy trustee is taking $8,800 of my settlement and we can keep the rest. i asked how he could, he said chapt 13 he can take it all, chapt 7 he cant. ???
