Legal Answers
Q. my daughters work comp settlement included a large amount for the weekly work payments she should have received leaving
A: Was this a final settlement, is the case closed?

One type of Workers’ Compensation settlement is a Stipulated Award. A Stipulated Award settles only the disability benefits not the whole claim. From your description of what was received from the settlements, it is possible it could have been a Stipulated Award.
