STIP FOR AWARD: My uncle Bob told me his San Diego work comp attorney mentioned something about wanting to "stip his work comp case," what is he talking about?

This is simply a type of work comp settlement in which the parties agree on the terms of an award (settlement), and it may include future medical treatment. Payment takes place over time, and this agreement is put into writing, and this written document is provided to the judge for final review.  Another type of work comp settlement is called a Compromise and Release (C&R).
