Auto and Property Subrogation
On the majority of claims, whether property damage, med-pay, or both, the responsible party is covered by liability insurance. These cases often offer the highest potential for recovery as well as the most challenges as contested litigation is often necessary. SMBP is dedicated to subrogation litigation and all our attorneys handle contested litigation effectively and efficiently focusing on maximum recovery.
Catastrophic Loss Subrogation
SMBP offers our clients extensive knowledge and expertise in pursuing recovery against the responsible parties in a catastrophic loss claim, whether manufacturer, service provider, builder, or other entity. SMBP is called to the scene of a property often within days of the loss by our clients, works to secure the scene and preserve evidence, retains the most knowledgeable experts, and ensures effective communication with all relevant and necessary parties.
Worker’s Compensation Subrogation
When an insured’s employee files a workers’ compensation claim and a third-party may be responsible for the employee’s injury, SMBP aggressively pursues recovery of the amounts paid under the insured’s workers’ compensation coverage through strong negotiations and litigation with a keen focus on maximizing recovery potential.
Uninsured Motorist Subrogation
When the responsible party is uninsured, recovery from the responsible party can be frustrating, tedious, and expensive. SMBP works diligently to obtain a recovery directly from the responsible party without filing a lawsuit. When this proves unsuccessful, SMBP ensures that our clients expended resources only on those claims with a highest chance for recovery.
When a responsible party’s liability insurance coverage is contested by his or her insurer, SMBP aggressively prosecutes and defends coverage litigation to maximize applicable coverage, boost recovery potential, and protect our clients’ subrogation rights.
