Third-Party Liens: How to maximize results

Oregon Workers' Compensation Law allows an injured worker to bring a cause of action against a person or corporation who is not the employer of the injured worker and who is not a co-worker.  A third-party case can be valuable and important to an injured worker in seeking just compensation. Unfortunately, a workers' compensation insurer can attach a lien to any money recovered from a third-party.  This often leads to an injured worker getting substantially less money in his/her pocket.

Third-party liens are often confusing and complex.  In the attached article, which appeared in the Fall 2013 Trial Lawyer Magazine, Martin Alvey describes the intricacies of the law and tells the story of how he was able to help a client obtain a complete waiver of the paying agent's third-party lien, substantially increasing the amount of money for his client.
