I have a Notice of Hearing- Mandatory Settlement Conference

This answer was rated:

I have a Notice of Hearing- Mandatory Settlement Conference as an owner before the Workers Compensation Appeals Board. The claim is frauglent yet the claiment has put together thousands in medical bills. The last 3 clients the claiment worked for are writing strong letters of complaint about her. She & her attorney are willing to settle for $25,000
No one thinks we should settle- as everyone knows she only cares about getting money from us & the system. I am a very small co with little or no profits. I have no workers comp. only a bond & insurance. Question- I have been told to file BK as it all goes away at that point. Do I need to file bk before the Settlement conference on the 29th of this month.
