Subrogation investigation refers to the process of investigating and pursuing a claim on behalf of an insurance company to recover funds it has paid out as a result of an insurance claim. Subrogation typically arises in the context of property and casualty insurance, such as auto insurance, homeowner's insurance, or commercial property insurance.
Here's how subrogation investigations work
Insurance Claim Payment: When an insurance company pays out a claim to its policyholder for damages or losses, the insurance company may have the right to recover those funds if a third party is responsible for the incident that led to the claim.
Identifying Responsible Parties: Subrogation investigators are tasked with identifying the responsible party or parties who may be legally liable for the damages. This could include individuals, businesses, or other entities whose actions or negligence contributed to the loss.
Gathering Evidence: Investigators collect evidence, such as accident reports, witness statements, photographs, and other relevant documentation, to establish liability and prove the case.
Negotiation or Legal Action: Once sufficient evidence is gathered, the insurance company may attempt to negotiate with the responsible party to recover the funds paid out in the claim. If negotiations fail, the insurance company may pursue legal action, such as filing a lawsuit, to recover the funds.
Recovery of Funds: If successful, the insurance company recovers the funds it paid out in the claim, which can help offset the costs of the claim and potentially reduce insurance premiums for policyholders.
Subrogation investigations are often conducted by specialized subrogation teams within insurance companies or by independent subrogation firms. These investigations require a thorough understanding of insurance law, liability assessment, and the legal process for pursuing recovery.
It's important to note that not all insurance claims result in subrogation investigations. Subrogation typically applies when a third party is at fault and legally responsible for the damages, allowing the insurance company to seek reimbursement on behalf of its policyholder.
