Many employees travel for their job. What happens when you pay benefits in the claimant’s home State, but the third-party action is in the defendant’s home State? What statute applies? How can you ensure you are still getting your maximum recovery? In this episode, “Out-of-State Accidents: Choice of Law, Federal Cases, and Harmonizing Subrogation Statutes,” Christopher Major, Civil Practice Team Leader at Lois Law Firm, discusses how to navigate multijurisdictional claims, how to monitor or intervene in a federal case, and how to blend statutes to ensure you receive your maximum reimbursement.
Major discusses the following:
- The choice of law doctrine in New York and New Jersey.
- When to expect a federal action and how to find it on PACER.
- The availability of remedies such as loss transfer for out-of-State accidents or foreign workers’ compensation claims.
- How to use basic rights of contract to “pick and choose” the most favorable reimbursement scheme.
