Reflection on 34 years of Subrogation

Wednesday Jul 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.
