What is SUBROGATION (sub-BRO-gay-shun)?

Posted on January 4, 2009

When an insurance company pays a policyholder for a loss, the insurance company has a right of subrogation against any person or persons responsible for the loss. The right of subrogation arises out of the automobile insurance policy, which is an indemnity contract. Basically, the right of subrogation allows the insurance company to pay its policyholder and then pursue the responsible party for the payments made. When the insurance company collects against the responsible party or its insurance company, the policyholder will receive its pro-rata share of the deductible applied to the original loss payment made to the policyholder. If the subrogation claim is unsuccessful, then the collision may become a chargeable accident to the policyholder, and possibly result in a premium increase. Source: Blue Leaf Claims of Suffield, Conn.
