Appellate Division Rules on Amount of Attorneys Fee Permitted in Lien Reimbursement to Workers’ Compensation Carrier in High Third Party Settlements

By on April 5, 2019 in Settlements with 0 Comments

There has been a longstanding dispute as to the amount of the attorney’s fee permitted in calculating the lien reimbursement due to the workers’ compensation insurance carrier in high third party settlements (i.e., those that exceed $500,000). This dispute was recently resolved in the reported Appellate Division decision of Liberty Mutual Insurance o/b/o Sabert Corporation v. Jose R. Rodriguez, A-0112-17T4 (App. Div. April 2, 2019), a case I argued on behalf of the workers’ compensation carrier. Click here for the article written by my partner, John H. Geaney, Esq., summarizing this case.
