Subrogation - a big word for an important legal remedy.

Our Subrogation Group gets results. For years, we have successfully recovered millions of dollars in subrogation and recovery actions involving property losses to businesses, residences, commercial structures, schools and other public and private structures. We aggressively pursue claims utilizing our property, construction and trial experience to arrive at successful resolutions.

We provide comprehensive evaluation of your claims and damages, provide recommendations concerning your potential for recovery, and identify and retain appropriate experts. Recognizing that litigation should be a last resort, we utilize a variety of alternative dispute forums to facilitate the settlement of claims, including successful informal settlement conferences between parties before formal litigation is commenced.

Our Workers’ Compensation Subrogation lawyers have years of experience prosecuting the recovery of benefits paid by workers’ compensation insurers and employers for work injuries caused by other parties. We work closely with our clients to properly investigate and understand the nature of the injury and evaluate potentially responsible parties. We view the subrogation interests of employers and insurers as independent statutory and legal rights, and aggressively pursue settlement negotiations and the recovery of damages.

We also provide guidance to employers on a variety of issues, including potential employer liability concerns arising from work injuries. We provide seminars to employers, insurers and administrators which can be tailored to meet any specific need.
