About this Episode

Keeping the exposure down during a workers’ compensation claim is difficult enough. With the deck perpetually stacked against the carrier in New York, enforcing limits on indemnity and medical benefits can be a daunting task. What happens, however, when claims that impact your workers’ compensation reserves arise outside of the Workers’ Compensation Board? Increasingly, we are seeing no-fault insurance carriers and medical providers commencing civil actions against the workers’ compensation carrier for reimbursement of alleged no-fault benefits. We are also seeing our clients receive hundreds, if not thousands, of HIMP-1 demands from the claimant health insurers each year. Some of these demands can be for tens of thousands of dollars! In this LIVE “Public Service Announcement” webinar, Civil Practice Group leader Christopher Major, Esq. will break down how you can see these claims coming, and how to fight back when you get one!
