Subrogation & Recoveries

National Subrogation and Collection Practice

The attorneys at Poerio & Walter, Inc., based in Pittsburgh and Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, work with our clients, insurance companies, third party administrators, and self-insured businesses in numerous industries, to perfect an aggressive and successful program of subrogation and insurance recoveries. Subrogation is the substitution of one party in the place of another with respect to a lawful claim against a third party, so that the substitute party succeeds to the right of the other with respect to the claim against the third party. Subrogation most commonly arises in relation to policies of insurance, but the legal technique of subrogation has a much broader application.

The concept of subrogation is used by those insurance companies which are obligated under policies to pay the property damage or casualty losses which the insured has sustained. In situations where damages appear to have been caused by the negligence or fault of a third party, insurance companies have traditionally exercised their right of subrogation to pursue claims against the liable party.
