About this Episode

What happens when your employee gets injured by a tortfeasor while in another state? Does the employer/carrier have the ability to assert a demand for reimbursement of the worker’s compensation cost against the party residing in another state? How does the employer/carrier maximize its recovery?

Chris Major discusses answers to all of those questions as well as the following:

  • New York and New Jersey Subrogation generally;
  • The New York standard for reimbursement rights across state lines in third-party cases;
  • How to Apply the New York standard for reimbursement across state lines in context with examples;
  • The New Jersey standard for seeking reimbursement across state lines;
  • Applications of New Jersey’s law with examples;
  • Other jurisdictional issues, including prohibitions on reimbursement and subrogation claims.
