Subrogation

Subrogation is a vastly complex area of law. Workers' compensation benefits are payable regardless of fault. However, when an injury is due to the negligence of a party other than the employer (third-party), the employer or the workers' compensation insurance carrier may obtain reimbursement from such third-parties or a credit against liability for workers' compensation benefits if the injured worker receives a third-party settlement or judgment. It is essential to the outcome of a case that investigative work begins quickly and that subrogation counsel determine how active a role should be taken to identify, preserve and maximize the potential rights of reimbursement and credit. The experienced attorneys at Slade Neighbors work with employers, insurance carriers, third-party administrators and self-insured groups as they navigate these highly specialized issues.

Our attorneys have successfully received maximum recovery on subrogation liens while recognizing that our clients did not wish to incur maximum legal fees. Our attorneys protect and pursue our clients’ subrogation interests through activities as simple as sending a demand letter or attending third-party settlement conferences and mediations, to representing our clients in arbitrations and, if necessary, formally pursuing the subrogation lien through Court litigation to jury verdict and judgment.

We understand our clients wish to maximize their recovery and minimize their legal fees when pursuing subrogation. We work with every client individually to understand their goals, and meet their expectations.
