What we offer

Subrogation Outsourcing Program
Our premium solution to meeting your needs: licensed adjusters in negotiation, suspension of drivers license when applicable, and recovery of your money as quickly as possible.

Documentation for a Subrogation File

Our Adjusters are trained to put a file in order as soon as they receive the paper file. They organize the facts first then prove up the claim to make sure all documentation is in the file. Below is the minimum information needed to work a subrogation file:


Listing form- A form that lists the Adverse, their address, claim amount, date of loss, insured name, and claim number. Most clients today will design their own form, which will include this information.

Police Report/Loss Notice- The facts of the loss are the most important part of the documentation. Liability and even possible insurance coverage can be determined from this part of the documentation.

Estimates- Proof of damages is necessary to file a claim with another carrier or suspend the adverse driver's license.

Drafts -Proof that payment has occurred. Once again this information is necessary to prove up the estimates.
