Subrogation Recovery on a Workers’ Compensation Lien


Did you know that it is still possible to pursue subrogation recovery on a workers’ compensation lien for a lien that accrued outside of Ohio? You may pursue reimbursement of the workers’ comp lien up to two years from the date the lien was paid.

Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation

While the Bureau handles workers’ compensation liens in Ohio, if an out of state worker is injured and files suit in Ohio, the workers comp law of the state where the workers’ comp policy originated will control the lien and determine whether subrogation can be pursued. If your state allows for subrogation on workers comp liens, and your insured is injured and files suit in Ohio, you are still able to pursue that lien here in Ohio. Be sure to contact one of our subrogation attorneys to discuss your file in depth.
