Subrogation provides for the BWC or self-insured employer to receive reimbursement of workers’ compensation benefits paid where the injured worker has a third party action because of the injury. A third party action exists when a worker suffers an injury in the course of their employment which gives them a right to workers’ compensation and also gives them a right to sue someone in tort.
Have you suffered an injury at work involving a third party? For example, were you injured while driving for the employer and endured an accident involving another person or company? Were you working for your employer, but suffered an injury on another person or company’s property? The Bainbridge Firm may be able to answer your questions and concerns.
