    Getting Creative With Global Settlements: Lien Waivers, Litigation Costs, and Clever Consent Agreements

    Both New York and New Jersey require the workers’ compensation carrier to contribute its equitable share of litigation costs on the petitioner/claimant’s third-party recovery. One of the best ways to cut down exposure and resolve a workers’ compensation claim months (sometimes years!) earlier than it otherwise would have is a “global settlement.”

    In this LIVE webinar, Christopher Major, partner at Lois Law Firm, will discuss when a case is in a position for a “global settlement,” how the numbers work in both States, best practices, and how the carrier can avail itself of a clever consent agreement to settle on its terms.
