Reflection on 34 years of Subrogation

Wednesday, July 10, 2013

Back in 1979, when I was a 1st year adjuster, subrogation was considered an “oh yeah, I’ll get to it” situation.   Claim handling back then was a one person experience, from intake of new claims to resolving salvage and subrogation.  Carrier to carrier recoveries and arbitration was usually left to Friday afternoons, if there was time.  Uninsured Motorist pursuit was minimal at best.   There was the occasional dictate from home office to raise the level of recoveries efforts.   A couple of adjusters would team up and go knock on doors trying to find the money.   That was a very discomforting experience that was maybe done once a quarter.

Words from our Executive Director

Friday Jul 8, 2011

Bloody Brilliant What makes us different?  Good question.  What is it about Wilber and Associates, P.C. that truly makes the difference and sets us apart from the competition in the business of receivables management?  Many collection agencies claim to be best.  They have this or that revolutionary program or process which they claim no one else offers, or no one else can do like they can.  With a lot of skill and flash they will present with slick brochures and packets that they are somehow set apart by ...

President's Corner - Be The Hunter

Tuesday Feb 9, 2010

Though I don’t often discuss it in a business context, I am a hunter. More precisely -- a bow hunter. I particularly enjoy bear camp each year in Canada. Long days of perching ten feet up a tree, moving nothing but my eyes, most of the time spent silently cursing the ruthless mosquitoes that take more blood each year than I could ever give to the Red Cross. Hours of boring monotony, stiff muscles and some particularly idiotic song stuck in my head. Hot during the day but freezing by dark.
