What is Subrogation and How Does it Impact a Pennsylvania Personal Injury Case?
Tim Rayne, a Pennsylvania Personal Injury attorney explains what Subrogation is and how it impacts a Pennsylvania Personal Injury case. Subrogation is the right of someone who has made payments on behalf of someone else to recover those payments. Subrogation in a Personal Injury case arises most often when medical bills or lost wages are paid due to an injury. In some circumstances, the entity that has paid medical bills or lost wages (usually and insurance company), has a right to have those payment reimbursed, IF the injured person makes a legal claim and receives compensation from the person who caused the accident. Subrogation rules vary based upon the type of case (auto accident, slip and fall, medical malpractice, or dangerous product) and based upon the insurance policy. Expert advice from an experienced Personal Injury attorney is critical when it comes to understanding Subrogation and making sure that you are treated fairly.
