ask your lawyer

your question indicates that you are in the process of settling a workers comp claim. this is a question for your workers comp lawyer. it's what you're paying her/him for. c&r's have many, many adverse ramifications if they're not done right. if you don't have a comp attorney, get one. workers comp attorneys are limited by law in how much in fees they can collect. they invariably will make you more than if you try to deal with the insurer yourself.
if you do have a workers comp attorney, they should be answering that question for you.
i don't do comp; this is not self-interest talking. you are foolish to settle a workers comp claim without professional assistance.
good luck
