Subrogation and Arbitration

Our firm prides itself in maximizing subrogation opportunities on behalf of our clients. Our attorneys are trained in identifying subrogation potentials throughout the handling of all matters. Our reporting requirements to our clients demand that the attorneys review the claim with regard to potential subrogation opportunities, and identify those opportunities when providing recommendations to the client.  

Our firm offers subrogation services pursuant to Section 29 of the New York State Workers’ Compensation Law with regard to the resolution of Workers’ Compensation liens in conjunction with the settlement of third-party cause of action.  We analyze and identify the subrogation potentials taking into account the statutory reductions required pursuant to Section 29 of the Workers’ Compensation Law, and analyzing the applicability of additional reductions required by the applicable case law, including the Court of Appeals Decisions in Kelly, Burns, and Bissell

In addition to third-party subrogation, our office also handles Personal Injury Protection (PIP) Subrogation pursuant to section 5105 of the New York State Insurance Law (loss transfer).

Our experienced attorneys represent our clients before the American Arbitration Association with regard to No-Fault litigation and arbitration and before the Arbitration Forums, Inc., with regard to loss transfer arbitration in the New York metropolitan area, including Nassau and Suffolk counties.

Our Subrogation Department handles all aspects of subrogation within the Workers’ Compensation Law inclusive of Section 15-8(d) (Second Injury Fund), Section 25-a (Fund for Reopened Cases), and as set forth above Section 29 of the New York State Workers’ Compensation Law.
