    How to Subrogate and Prove Third-Party Causes of Action

    Both Section 29 in New York and Section 40 in New Jersey permit the carrier to sue “in the shoes” of the claimant/petitioner. Why would a claimant/petitioner not sue a third party? What can you do if they refuse? What are the statutory prerequisites to commencing a subrogation action? What are the proofs and legal standards involved for common third-party causes of action?
