Subrogation: From Loss to Verdict

Subrogation is the right for an insurer to step into the shoes of their insured to sue, most often in the name of the insured, to recover money paid to the insured by their insurer as a result of a loss caused by a third party(ies).

Over the past 20+ years, Donato, Minx, Brown & Pool, P.C.

Through these past incident investigations, we have learned much about how to organize our team, how to interface with other public and private entities involved in the accident, and how to streamline the technical aspects of the investigation.
