Michael B. Stevens has been selected to speak at the upcoming NASP Annual Conference in Washington, D.C., on October 28, 2019. Michael will be discussing Florida Statute §440.39 and the different mechanisms for recovering in worker’s compensation cases in Florida. The statute provides unique procedures with strict deadlines that, when complied with properly, allows a carrier to move from that back of the line with its lien, to the front of the line for dollar one. The presentation will provide both a comprehensive analysis of the statute along with real case examples of how each scenario plays out. The majority of the attorneys representing claimants in Florida have not come up against a carrier attempting to enforce their dollar one rights during the second year. Our presentation will give carriers and attorneys clarity and greater confidence when flexing this rarely used statutory muscle.
