Insurers have a right to recover payments made to an insured arising from the negligence of a third party. The general rule is that, after paying a claim, an insurer is “subrogated” to the rights of the policy holder and can “step into the injured party’s shoes” to go after or sue the negligent party. We have prosecuted and collected subrogation claims on behalf of insurance companies since 1976 – before computers and copy machines. Since that time our firm has developed into one of the largest subrogation firms in the Pacific Northwest. As the industry has grown, we have carefully grown with it, conserving resources and adopting payment disbursement technology, while obtaining the best possible results.
