Case Study – Workers’ Comp & Auto Accidents

Case Study – Workers’ Comp & Auto Accidents

Where an employer failed to carry its burden of showing that the combination of workers’ compensation benefits and a personal injury claim settlement fully and completely compensated an injured person for injuries sustained in an auto accident, a trial court’s ruling that the employer was not entitled to recover on its subrogation lien for the workers’ compensation benefits paid was affirmed.

See Ga. Elec. Mbrshp. Corp. v. Garnto, 266 Ga. App. 452, 597 S.E.2d 527 (2004) for more information.
