Multiparty Litigation Issues

Wednesday
9:45 – 11:00 am

Grand Ballroom 8A
Convention Level


The more the merrier? Not necessarily. With claimants switching employers and employers switching carriers, questions abound regarding the liability of particular employers and carriers. This panel will address the last responsible employer/carrier rule, as well as the aggravation rule. Topics will also include logistical issues, such as filing multiple claims for multiple injuries against the same employer, and how a carrier can recoup money—if possible—once it is determined that a different carrier is liable for the claimant’s injury. Finally, the panel will briefly discuss the party—or parties—liable for the payment of attorney’s fees in last responsible claims.
