Efficient Workers’ Compensation Subrogation
Workers’ compensation subrogation is a vastly complex area of law. Although workers’ compensation benefits are payable regardless of fault, when an injury is due to the negligence of a party other than the employer, (third party) the employer or the workers’ compensation insurance carrier may obtain reimbursement from such third parties or a credit against liability for workers’ compensation benefits if the injured worker receives a third-party settlement or judgment. It is essential to the outcome of a case that investigative work begins quickly and that subrogation counsel determine how active a role should be taken to identify, preserve and maximize the potential rights of reimbursement and credit. The experienced attorneys at Sassano & Fleischer Attorneys at Law work with employers, insurance carriers, third-party administrators and self-insured groups as they navigate these highly specialized issues.
