What is Subrogation in Workers’ Comp Cases?
In the world of insurance and benefit payouts, subrogation is a fairly common practice that goes on right under peoples’ noses. If you are hurt at work, your own insurance company can use subrogation to act on your behalf. They will begin by paying for your expenses upfront, helping you recover faster, and then turn to the insurance provider of your employer and demanding necessary payments. While this may seem beneficial on the surface, subrogation cases can get complicated quickly if the party that used subrogation is not fully reimbursed, or if you are not given any recoveries in the first place.
