Q. I have a worker comp case ready to settle and a lien for child support appearred, can they take the entire settlement
A: The law requires that prior to a Workers' Compensation Judge approving a settlement liens regarding child support must be resolved. In your case, if you owe more than the settlement amount, the Child Support Division of the District Attorney's Office will seek the full amount of their lien. While the total outstanding child support lien is required to be paid in fuller, there have been cases where we have successfully negotiated a lesser amount to be deducted from the settlement. It is highly recommended you hire a lawyer to assist.
Q. Can a work comp settlement be rescinded?
A: Although frowned upon by the WCAB, upon a showing of "good cause", the requisite factors of either fraud or mutual mistake must be proven in order for a settlement to be rescinded.
Q. What is an application for adjuication of claim for workers comp. Did my attorney file this or my employer?
A: Filing this form establishes a case before the Workers' Compensation Appeals Board (WCAB). A WCAB case number will then be assigned. It is customary for your attorney to file this document, at the beginning of your case, once he or she has been hired. However, it is filed occasionally by employers.
