Goldberg Segalla’s nationwide Workers’ Compensation practice includes a team dedicated to handling issues related to workers’ compensation liens and subrogation for New Jersey employers and insurance carriers.

New Jersey law provides that employers and workers’ compensation insurance carriers can be reimbursed for the workers’ compensation benefits paid to a claimant out of the claimant’s third-party recovery, after deductions for the claimant’s third-party claim expenses and attorney’s fees. Goldberg Segalla’s New Jersey Workers’ Compensation Lien Subrogation Team is able to assist employers and carriers in navigating all issues pertaining to New Jersey workers’ compensation liens and subrogation, including:

  • Calculating and protecting liens
