About this Episode

Too often, defense of a workers’ compensation claim and recovery on the subrogation side are managed separately. You can posture both claims for success, however, by coordinating efforts. In this episode, “Keep it Under One Roof: Harmonizing Defense and Subrogation Efforts Across the Workers’ Compensation Claim,Christopher Major, Civil Practice Team Leader at Lois Law Firm, dives into the issues of investigation, damages, discovery, trial strategy, and “global” settlements.

Major discusses the following:

  • How to identify third-party action potential when you onboard a new claim
  • The benefit of constant communication between the handling claims professional and recovery specialist
  • Keeping an eye out for potential exposure beyond just workers’ compensation, such as intentional wrong claims, the “Scaffold Law,” HIMP-1 reimbursement requests, etc.
  • How to push for a “global” settlement of all claims simultaneously, with examples
