Third Party Recovery
If the injury was caused by an outside (non-government employee) then the injured worker has the obligation to bring a claim against the third party. Any monies obtained must be reimbursed to the Government in accordance with a statutory formula. There are severe penalties for failure to do so. The subrogation unit is administered by the Office of Solicitor General. The Office is very well run. It is claimant and attorney friendly.
