Workers' Compensation Liens: The Law and Practice (2012)
Settling a personal injury action arising from a workers’ compensation claim presents many complex issues and potential pitfalls for attorneys. The claimant’s workers’ compensation attorney and personal injury attorney, as well as the compensation carrier’s attorney, must all have a thorough understanding of Workers’ Compensation Law Sec. 29 and the relevant case law.
The first half of the program provides a thorough review of the law by a speaker with over 30 years of experience with the New York State Insurance Fund and the Workers’ Compensation Board. Particular emphasis will be placed on the issues of consent, lien, offset, equitable apportionment of litigation expenses, and the overlap of Workers' Compensation and No-Fault. All of the key case law will be discussed.
The second half of the program will focuses on the practical application of the law. A Panel of three highly respected practitioners share best practices and practical tips for successfully navigating all of the complex issues presented in resolving both the civil suit and the workers’ compensation claim. The panel, consisting of a claimant’s WC attorney, a plaintiff’s PI attorney and a WC Carrier’s attorney, take you step-by-step through the handling of a case from intake to settlement and beyond.
