About this Episode

New York’s Section 29 and New Jersey’s Section 40 exist to prevent the claimant/petitioner from recovering twice for the same injury. That never seems to stop third-party attorneys from asking for a “1/3rd, 1/3rd, 1/3rd” split though. In this episode, “No Double Recovery! Practical Advice for Avoiding Reimbursement Pitfalls,” Christopher Major addresses how to perfect your lien rights every step of the way so that you are holding the cards when the third-party action settles. We will also go over whether common threats such as quashing the lien or abandoning the civil action are legitimate.
