What is loss transfer? How can you ensure that you and your team are taking full advantage of loss transfer opportunities?

Loss transfer is the process by which an insurer or self-insurer that pays No-Fault benefits or Workers’ Compensation benefits in lieu of No-Fault benefits can recover reimbursement from the insurer of the party at fault for the accident. For a claim to qualify for loss transfer, the underlying loss must arise from a motor vehicle accident involving a vehicle for hire or a vehicle weighing in excess of 6,500 pounds. Loss transfer claims are resolved either by way of a settlement or they are heard via mandatory inter-company arbitration.   Arbitration Forums, Inc. is the sole forum designated by the State of New York to hear loss transfer matters.  A Workers’ Compensation carrier or self-insured employer can seek reimbursement of up to $50,000.00 in past payments on each Workers’ Compensation claim. However, a No-Fault carrier can seek over $50,000.00 via loss transfer if they have Optional Basic Economic Loss coverage. The Jones Jones LLC team is excellent at identifying and protecting clients’ rights in rare situations where Workers’ Compensation carriers can assert a lien for the first $50,000 paid on a claim arising from a motor vehicle accident. Our team guides clients  in order to avoid making common mistakes that can cost them thousands or even millions of dollars over time.
