About this Episode

In New York, either a carrier’s written consent to settle the third-party action or a compromise order from the civil court approving the settlement is required, or else the claimant forfeits the right to future benefits. Over time, the law has carved out some basic requirements for making a consent letter effective, including circumstances where rights may be lost if not adequately preserved! In this episode, “Components of a Bulletproof Consent Letter Under Section 29(5),” Christopher Major, Civil Practice Team Leader at Lois Law Firm, break downs the consent requirement and lay out what belongs in the final agreement.
