The MSBA's Construction Law Section Presents
"A Worker Was Hurt and Now We Are Getting Sued? Understanding Workers' Compensation Subrogation, Employer Liability and Contractual Indemnity at a Glance"
A brief lecture on what happens when a construction worker is injured on the job as the result of another contractor's fault. We all know the injured worker receives workers' compensation from his employer, but we will try to make sense of the myriad of issues that arise with respect to the employer's right of subrogation, the employer's liability for its own fault, and how that may be impacted by contractual obligations. We will contrast the simplistic statutory formula approach that Wisconsin has followed versus the complicating Minnesota courts adoptions of employer liability in Lambertson, separate Naig and reverse-Naig' settlements, and the ability to skirt the statutory formula with Henning allocations. Finally, we intend to explain the clarifying codification of the statutory "Waive and Walk" amendment over ten years after it was drafted by the presenter and signed into law by Governor Jesse "the Body" Ventura.
