About this Episode

The claimant/petitioner filing a civil action is useful for more than just lien rights. Many times, discovery responses or deposition transcripts are filed in support of motions. The employer/carrier can also intervene and subpoena records. What might this discovery yield, and how can we weaponize it? In this LIVE webinar, Christopher Major covers how to investigate and leverage a civil case, principles of res judicata and collateral estoppel, and how the “global defense” model is the key to driving down exposure.
