Workers compensation insurer must reimburse no fault insurers

William Baird was injured in a single vehicle accident while making a truck delivery.  Travelers insurance company provided workers compensation benefits to his employer, but argued that it did not owe benefits because the policy was canceled for non-payment.  Baird's no fault insurers were then required to pay benefits and they sued Travelers for reimbursement.  The Court held that since Travelers had not complied with the statutory notice requirement for workers compensation benefits, it owed the medical and wages to which Baird was entitled.  The Court granted the no fault insurers "standing" to contest Travelers' non-payment.
