Large Loss Property Subrogation
At Keis George, we pursue commercial and personal property subrogation in state and federal courts throughout the United States. From our four offices in Ohio, Illinois, and Indiana, we are hours away from the scene of the loss. Our location proximity is important as successful large loss property subrogation requires adherence to statutes as well as a timely and efficient scene investigation. We help our clients properly evaluate the loss, determine the potential for subrogation recovery, and manage the subrogation side of a property loss from start to finish. While we typically litigate larger loss claims, we also handle smaller losses.
Large loss property claims
As we have litigated in state and federal court throughout the United States, we have gained experience in a variety of property subrogation matters including:
- Personal and commercial fires;
- Defective products;
- Gas explosions;
- Cellulose insulation;
- Construction defect;
- Industrial disasters; and
- Utility company errors, sprinkler, plumbing, and other water losses.
In order to properly assess the loss, determine the potential for subrogation recovery, and help you manage the subrogation side of a property claim from start to finish, we formed Early Involvement.
Scene investigation and preservation
Early Involvement is a strategic process in which our attorneys ensure a good claim is a recoverable 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 ensure a good claim is a recoverable claim. Tactics include but are not limited to:
- Choosing the right expert(s);
- Protecting the integrity of the scene and preserving evidence;
- Identifying and interviewing key targets and witnesses;
- Canvassing the area for additional parties of interest;
- Placing third parties on notice;
- Coordinating joint scene examinations; and
- Obtaining fire reports, 911 tapes, and meeting with investigators.
Our Second Look Program helps your company capitalize on missed property subrogation opportunities. Too many insurance companies allow recoverable revenue to walk out the door because they do not explore their options through subrogation. A benchmarking study from the National Association of Subrogation Professionals found that about 15 percent of claims close without consideration of subrogation. Through our Second Look Program, we can improve your ratio of “files closed with no recovery” by identifying claims with subrogation potential and proposing a plan to work those claims to recovery. As there is no cost to review a file, send it in before you close it out.
