Working on a case today and discovered some law that some might find helpful. If you have been seperated from your spouse and suffer a worker’s compensation injury , Be careful how the settlement is worded . The settlement must state the disabilty benefits replace future income . If it does not your spouse maybe entitled to one half of the settlement . See Bilyeu v.Bilyeu 196 S.W. 3d 131 . Thanks to Elizabeth Garrett for helping me with this case. It helps to know a good divorce attorney .
