Nationwide Subrogation

Our national subrogation practice offers services covering the first notice of loss all the way through trial, verdict or settlement, and judgment enforcement.  We handle large and mid-size losses throughout the United States, utilizing an extensive network of forensic experts, consultants, and trial firms. Our Massachusetts presence allows us to personally handle every aspect of litigation in the state, especially large property losses, with the added advantage of over two decades of local knowledge of the MA legal landscape.  Regardless where the loss is located, we work tirelessly to investigate, develop, and litigate each and every claim for a successful outcome.

For our large property first notice of loss assignments, we coordinate an immediate and comprehensive investigation into the cause of loss within 24 to 48 hours of a loss.  In conjunction with our nationwide network of experts and consultants, we interview key witnesses, obtain relevant information from public authorities, and obtain all pertinent records and documents.  We coordinate and organize joint scene and evidence inspections.  We work jointly with scientific and forensic experts to establish a comprehensive picture of each cause of loss, identifying every culpable party and developing every case for the earliest possible resolution.  We also have great success prosecuting third-party claims that our clients’ in-house subrogation departments have pursued without success.

We prosecute subrogation claims caused by fire and explosions, water losses, structural defects, contractor liability, and product, appliance, equipment and machinery failures.   We also pursue subrogation involving automobile manufacturing defects, commercial and personal auto accidents, cargo losses, and marine vessel losses.
