The “Major Monday’s” Webinar
In this video, “Understanding Verbal Threshold in New Jersey,” Christopher Major, Civil Practice Team Leader at Lois Law Firm, discusses what happens when the plaintiff and tortfeasor in a civil action attempt to resolve their case by settlement without the consent of the workers’ compensation carrier in New York. This video is from a live presentation on March 9, 2020.
Major discusses the following:
- What are the rights of the workers’ compensation carrier under Section 29 to the proceeds of a third-party lawsuit?
- What happens when the parties to the civil action do not obtain consent to settlement.
- The remedy available to the third parties when the workers’ compensation carrier refuses to consent to a settlement.
- How recent case decisions will impact the practice in 2020.
