Both Section 29 and Section 40 give rise to three distinct rights: lien reimbursement, subrogation, and a future credit/offset against additional workers’ compensation benefits. In this episode, ““Subrogation” as a Term of Art: The Difference Between Lien, Subrogation, and Offset Rights,” Christopher Major, partner at Lois Law Firm, explains the differences between these statutory rights, their meaning, and how/when they apply. He covers benefits that are “lienable,” third-party recoveries subject to a lien, what is needed for formal subrogation, and practical examples of how credit/offset rights apply.
