There is potential for subrogation in any accident that involves a third party: whether it be a car accident, product failure, improper workmanship,employee or some other negligent act.
Identifying and successfully recovering all subrogation opportunities is complex, time consuming and often intimidating. Each state has its own set of laws and guidelines, each treating subrogation differently. Each claim type has its own nuances that need to be understood. Liability is often contested, while claimed damages are scrutinized and reduced. Focus and expertise are of paramount importance. As a result superior investigation and negotiation skills are required, with a strong dose of determination. Even then, sometimes subrogation claims require the filing of arbitration or lawsuits to bring about a successful result.
