Federal District Court Holds Workers Comp Carrier Not Entitled To Third-Party Recovery Paid For Pain And Suffering

In a case of first impression in Rhode Island, the federal district court has held that a workers compensation carrier is not subrogated to the worker's third-party recovery to the extent it was paid for pain and suffering. The court held the carrier was entitled to reimbursement for the amounts paid for medicals bills and lost earnings. It said it must hold an evidentiary hearing to determine the apportionment.
