Attorney Greg Lois discusses the availability of a lump-sum dismissal settlement in New Jersey Workers’ Compensation cases. The presentation looks at the limitations on this type of compromise in the statute (N.J.S.A. 34:15-20), the rules (N.J.A.C. 12:235-13.1) and the case law. Attorney Lois reviews the barriers to Section 20 settlements and presents practical advice and opinion on obtaining the dismissal in court. The discussion also include an overview of the Medicare Secondary Payer Act as a barrier to full compromise settlements in New Jersey, with practical tips for resolving cases quickly.
