Both Section 29 in New York and Section 40 in New Jersey permit the carrier to sue “in the shoes” of the claimant/petitioner. Why would a claimant/petitioner not sue a third party? What can you do if they refuse? What are the statutory prerequisites to commencing a subrogation action? What are the proofs and legal standards involved for common third-party causes of action? In this LIVE webinar on Monday, July 11, 2022 Christopher Major, Civil Practice Team Leader at Lois Law Firm, boils down the complex issue of subrogation into the basics!
Major discusses the following:
- Instances where a claimant/petitioner might not file a third-party action
- The legal requirements under Section 29(2) and Section 40(f)
- What to do before and after filing the subrogation complaint
- How to drive toward immediate settlement to minimize costs
