California Statewide Subrogation
Over the years, in addition to workers’ compensation, the lawyers in our firm have been involved in a multitude of claims including construction defect, personal injury, product liability and various other general liability defense cases. We have practiced in both Municipal and Superior Courts throughout Southern California and have successfully tried cases to verdict. Our attorneys have proceeded to the appellate level and have successfully argued before the District Court of Appeals as well as the Supreme Court.
In addition, Siegel, Moreno & Stettler is one of the few firms that has been active in handling all types of subrogation matters. Subrogation has become extremely complex due to the interrelatedness between workers’ compensation, third party/civil liability, Proposition 51, liens, credit and attorney’s fees issues. It requires a specific understanding of each area and the implications that each has on the parties and in the forum where actions are maintained. We actively pursue discovery and prepare the case for the sake of our client’s maximum recovery, whether through negotiations, arbitration or trial. Most importantly, we are keenly aware of the need to add finality and to concurrently reach a resolution in workers’ compensation and third party claims.
