My question involves workers compensation law for the state of: New York
I am in the process of settling my WC case. My DOI was 3/30/2009. The WC-MSA has already been submitted to CMS for approval and is broken down as follows:
Total MSA $212,035.96 to be funded with an annuity, of which $13,679 is paid at settlement and $6,611.88 each yr thereafter for life.
$175,000 lump sum cash payment to resolve the claim under section 32.
Is my attorney's fee based on the lump sum only, or is it based on the MSA & lump sum? I can not find reference to any WC laws on this. BTW, I have the greatest attorney ever Thank you...
