Upcoming Webinars

    When Should the Carrier Sue as the Claimant’s Subrogee?

    Both Section 29 and Section 40 permit the carrier to “step into the shoes” of the claimant/petitioner and file a civil action as their subrogee. The statutes have different timelines and prerequisites, and incurring the cost of actually filing formal litigation may not be the wisest strategy.

    In this LIVE webinar, Greg Lois will discuss what hallmarks to watch out for on your case that support formal subrogation in the stead of the injured worker.
