About this Episode

In this episode, “Ethical Duties When Representing the Subrogor,” Christopher Major, leads a conversation about the ethical considerations for defense counsel representing a subrogated interest in a civil claim.

Major discusses the following:

  • What are the rights of the workers’ compensation carrier under Section 29 to the proceeds of a third-party lawsuit?
  • What happens when the parties to the civil action do not obtain consent to settlement.
  • The remedy available to the third parties when the workers’ compensation carrier refuses to consent to a settlement.

How recent case decisions will impact the practice in 2020.
