Workers’ compensation subrogation requires in-depth knowledge of some of the most
complex forms of litigation to successfully handle from start to finish. Many
of the world’s best lawyers will admit to having room to improve
when it comes to
subrogation cases of this nature. At Sacks Weston Diamond LLC, we are honored to have
Jesse M. Cohen on our staff, and he is honored to be able to share his unparalleled understanding
of workers’ compensation subrogation law with other legal professionals
during an upcoming Continued Legal Education (CLE) seminar.

Location: Cherry Hill, New Jersey
Date: Thursday, August 18th, 2016
Time: 8:30 AM to 4:30 AM
At the Fundamentals of Workers’ Compensation seminar, Attorney Cohen
will address a wide variety of issues specific to understanding and utilizing
workers’ compensation law to the benefit of employees and companies
alike, with an intentional focus on subrogation. Topics of discussion
in the full-day event will include an overview of state case law, how
to actually handle a workers’ compensation claim, benefits interplay,
temporary and permanent benefits, and ethical considerations when managing
a workers’ comp case.
What is Subrogation in Workers’ Comp Cases?
In the world of insurance and benefit payouts, subrogation is a fairly
common practice that goes on right under peoples’ noses. If you
are hurt at work, your own insurance company can use subrogation to act
on your behalf. They will begin by paying for your expenses upfront, helping
you recover faster, and then turn to the insurance provider of your employer
and demanding necessary payments. While this may seem beneficial on the
surface, subrogation cases can get complicated quickly if the party that
used subrogation is not fully reimbursed, or if you are not given any
recoveries in the first place.
