Subrogation Claims Litigation

Subrogation, overall, is quite a simple concept. However, when it comes to the execution of subrogation, it can get severely complex. The basis of a subrogation claim is one in which the insurance company seeks compensation from someone else for the damages it paid to an individual or business.

Why Do You Need a Subrogation Claims Litigation Attorney?

When one becomes involved in a subrogation action, hiring an experienced subrogation claims litigation attorney to defend their side is imperative.

A subrogation claims litigation attorney is skilled with an in-depth knowledge of this specific area of the law. A proficient attorney will utilize a proactive approach to put their client’s defense ahead of the plaintiff; this will place the party in a strong position to settle the case as quickly as possible in the most cost-effective way.

What Is Subrogation Claims Litigation?

Simply put, subrogation is when one party owes a second party money and a third party pays compensation. That third party will then try to attempt to collect the debt from the first party. A subrogation claim is most common when an insurance company pays a person for damages inflicted by a reckless or negligent person or entity.

One important note in subrogation claims is that before a third party can bring a suit, the right to sue must be transferred from the second party to the third party. This process of transfer is called subrogation. The third party becomes subrogated to the right of the second party to sue—the third party now takes the place of the second party to file the suit.

When this occurs, a subrogation defense lawyer is necessary to fight such a claim.
