Strategic process for large loss subrogation 

We assume every property loss has the potential for subrogation recovery. From our offices, we are hours away from the scene of the loss. Our ability to mobilize is critical as large loss subrogation relies on a timely and efficient scene investigation to work your claim to recovery. To properly assess the loss, determine the potential for subrogation recovery, and help you manage the subrogation side of the claim from start to finish, we formed Early Involvement. Early Involvement is a strategic, investigative process in which our attorneys use every resource at our disposal in an attempt to recover on your subrogation claim. The moment a loss is reported to Keis George, our attorneys immediately make preparations to investigate the loss onsite while our paralegals acknowledge and set up the claim. Once onsite, our attorneys use various tactics to help recover on your claim. Tactics include but are not limited to:

      • Choosing the right expert(s);
      • Protecting the integrity of the scene and preserving evidence;
