Dedicated subrogation attorneys deal with claims across a full range of coverage areas

We represent insurers in subrogation cases based on policy clauses assigning them the rights and remedies of the policyholder after a payout is made. We bring subrogation and recovery claims against tortfeasors and responsible third parties in state and federal courts. Our subrogation practice touches on claims in multiple lines of insurance, including:

  • Automotive
  • Property
  • Homeowners
  • Commercial
  • Construction
  • Trucking
  • Transportation
  • Medical/health care
  • Workers’ compensation

We represent our clients in pursuing parties responsible for losses arising from motor vehicle accidents, fires, floods, explosions, defective products, and premises accidents, among other types. We perform a full and careful investigation of the facts of the underlying incident, retaining properly qualified experts to assist with the evaluation of injuries and damages suffered. When partial settlements have been reached in a multiparty case, we pursue claims against non-settling third parties to the extent possible under the law.

In addition, we utilize the doctrine of equitable subrogation. When an insurer or other collateral source pays off an underlying claim to protect their interests, whether or not required to do so, a subrogation claim may be permitted to achieve a fair result.

Knowledgeable attorneys work with state and federal subrogation laws

There are certain state laws that limit an insurer’s right to subrogation Under Virginia’s Anti-Subrogation Statute. Auto insurance policies may not include clauses providing for subrogation of bodily injury claims. Maryland law reduces an insurer’s subrogation claim to a percentage of the paid-out claim in certain circumstances. As litigators experienced in the Virginia, Maryland and Washington, DC region, we are thoroughly familiar with local laws affecting subrogation and the ways to combat them. Some restrictions are preempted by ERISA and other federal laws, and self-insured entities and other collateral sources may be exempt.
