It’s so strange how Octomom could give birth to eight kids while having a back injury, isn’t it? That’s what a lot of people are wondering after Nadya recently cashed a $40,000 check from her previous employer, a California mental hospital. She got the big check because she reportedly won a settlement from workers’ compensation claim dating back to 1999. She was employed as a psychiatric technician at the time and was injured in a riot at the facility.
Suleman will only bank some $23,000 of the settlement proceeds, however, after deductions for legal fees and prior permanent disability payments.
What’s even worse is the fact that Nadya previously collected an incredible $170,000 in disability payments for chronic back pain from 2003 and 2008 apparently arising from the same injury, according to the LA Times. She also filed a second claim after she was rear-ended in 2001 on her way home from a doctor’s appointment, according to People.com.
Suleman also collected various forms of welfare after the birth of the octuplets but said in November that she is no longer on public a*sistance.
If you haven’t heard about this before, I’m sure a lot of you will be angry at this. How do you even get almost $200,000 for a back injury? Absolutely ridiculous!
