Lien Process

Help With Cross Over Cases in Oakland, CA

If you have suffered a work-related injury because of the negligence of a third party, you may be eligible for a cross over claim where you can seek compensation from multiple sources. Cross over cases require an intimate knowledge of both workers' comp law and personal injury law because the injured victim must file both types of claims. It is especially important to have the experienced guidance of an Oakland attorney during process of seeking compensation through multiple claims, because decisions made in either case will have a dramatic impact on the other case.

In a cross-over case, your workers' comp carrier will pay you the same benefits as any other workers' comp case, but the workers' comp carrier has the legal right to file or claim a lien against you for the compensation that you recover through your personal injury claim. A lien claim allows the workers' comp carrier to get their money back out of the third party compensation that you recover, and you are legally required to inform the workers' comp carrier of the third party action to protect their interest.
