Norton & Melnik attorneys have extensive experience in subrogation actions involving auto, property damage, and workers’ compensation claims. Our attorneys have represented some of the nation’s largest insurers, and produce consistent results in this notoriously challenging niche. In fact, our attorneys have often been tapped to take-over cases where large national firms have failed to produce results, and won.
As experienced subrogation attorneys, no issue is too complex for our team. Our attorneys have handled inverse condemnation actions against government entities, power grid failures, arson and electrical fires, and product liability claims. Of note, Erik R. Overlid was the handling attorney for a major insurance carrier on a multiple-claimant loss caused by the crash of a small aircraft, which led to the 2011 Blackburn Canyon fire in Kern County. The loss involved dozens of claims, as well as complex aviation-related liability and coverage issues, and Mr. Overlid secured a substantial recovery for the carrier.
In addition to handling subrogation claims after-the-fact, carriers have often asked us to respond immediately when subrogation potential can be identified early-on. In these cases, having experienced subrogation counsel on the scene of the incident can help preserve evidence and direct investigation efforts to ensure the best chance for successful subrogation. This tactic has proven highly effective, particularly on large losses where first party claims can rise to six and seven figures, as the resulting subrogation claims are often hotly contested.
Whatever the issue, our team of experienced subrogation attorneys will work with adjusters to identify, investigate, and pursue subrogation claims of any size. Let us show you what a difference aggressive, dedicated subrogation counsel can make.
