“Extra-Comp” Exposure: How to Combat No-Fault and HIMP Claims

Keeping the exposure down during a workers’ compensation claim is difficult enough. With the deck perpetually stacked against the carrier in New York, enforcing limits on indemnity and medical benefits can be a daunting task. What happens, however, when claims that impact your workers’ compensation reserves arise outside of the Workers’ Compensation Board? Increasingly, we are seeing no-fault insurance carriers and medical providers commencing civil actions against the workers’ compensation carrier for reimbursement of alleged no-fault benefits. We are also seeing our clients receive hundreds, if not thousands, of HIMP-1 demands from the claimant health insurers each year. Some of these demands can be for tens of thousands of dollars! In this episode, “Extra-Comp” Exposure: How to Combat No-Fault and HIMP Claims, Civil Practice Group leader Christopher Major, Esq. breaks down how you can see these claims coming, and how to fight back when you get one!
