Like workers' compensation, personal injury
cases can become extremely complex, especially those involving third-party accidents. For example, settling a workers' compensation claim without the workers' compensation carrier's approval may result in the forfeiture of any additional Workers' Compensation benefits.
Additionally, the Worker's Compensation carrier is entitled to be reimbursed for benefits paid and later recovered by a claimant from a third party. Once all is said and done, there may be drastic consequences for misunderstanding how these facets of Workers' Compensation law go together. For more than a quarter century, we have been working solely on these issues and understand even the most subtle interactions between them.
