The Common Fund Doctrine seems simple enough – it focuses on sharing the costs to obtain a recovery fairly.  Those who will benefit from the common fund of the recovery must share in the cost of obtaining it.  Just like the Made Whole doctrine, though, it can feel unfair when a personal injury attorney seeks to reduce the subrogation recovery for seemingly no reason. 

On this week’s installment, Rebecca is joined by fellow attorney, Jason Sullivan to discuss when the Common Fund Doctrine applies, and how to figure how much, if any, it will reduce your subrogation lien.
