Katherine A. Sandoval will be presenting a MWL webinar on Introduction to California Workers’ Compensation Subrogation on April 14, 2021 from 11:00 to 12:30 p.m. (CDT).
There are very few areas in which the law of each individual state vary more and are applied as differently, than in the area of workers’ compensation subrogation. While the basic parameter of workers’ compensation claims from state to state remain somewhat constant, the laws regarding subrogation and the application of those laws vary greatly. California is one of the most complicated states when it comes to workers’ compensation subrogation. In California, workers’ compensation is mandatory for all employers, even if the company has one employee. In 2018, California had over 650,000 workers’ compensation cases filed.
In this webinar, we will discuss the many nuances of California workers’ compensation subrogation, including statutory subrogation rights, who can bring a third-party action, notice requirements, what workers’ compensation benefits are recoverable, ways to protect subrogation rights, when to and when not to intervene, allocation of third-party recovery, how employer negligence effects this allocation, the Exclusive Remedy Rule, Dual Capacity Doctrine, and many other issues affecting subrogation. This webinar will be beneficial to claims professional in all levels of experience who have workers’ compensation subrogation responsibilities in the Golden State.
