I you waived the appeal period, you will usually get your check a couple of weeks after the decision approving the Compromise & Realse is issued by the judge. If you did not waive the appeal period, the Defendant/Insurance Company has 30 days after the decision to issue your check.
If you do not receive your check by then, you may file a Penalty Petition seeking a "penalty" of up to 50% of the compensation that is owed and payable to the Claimant.
