John Dreiser to Present on Workers’ Compensation Subrogation

On July 25, 2012, John Dreiser will present on behalf of NBI on the topic of Workers’ Compensation Subrogation.  The seminar will be at the Crowne Plaza in Knoxville, TN and is eligible for six hours of CLE.

Workers’ compensation subrogation is one of the most confusing areas of law – with its variable rights and allocation formulas reaching into personal injury, UM/UIM, labor and employment, product liability, medical malpractice and other areas of practice. Whether you represent an injured party, employer, manufacturer or insurance carrier, a solid understanding of subrogation statutes and fundamentals is a crucial first step in making sure your client’s interests are fully protected. Who is entitled to a piece of a third party settlement when medical benefits have already been paid out? How do workers’ compensation and Medicare interact? Get the legal answers you need here.
