Subrogation Recovery Saves Money

A subrogation claim is a loss caused by the negligent act of a third party. While the basic concept is relatively straightforward, subrogation recovery in the public sector is an area of claims handling often overlooked or forgotten. It involves both large and small investigations as well as analysis of losses for reducing expenses.

Subrogation recovery claims can result from:

Auto Debris Cleanup
Fire Hydrant Damage
Sign Damage
Fence Damage
Vehicle Damage
Underground Infrastructure Damage
Streetlight Pole Damage
Electric Pole Damage

Traffic Signal Damage
Transformer Damage
DUI Fees
Environment Spills
Graffiti Code Enforcement
Fires and Explosions
Emergency Response
Product Failure


Systematic and Aggressive Case Resolution

George Hills’ Subrogation Division sets up a claim file upon receipt of the incident and maintains a claim file on each potential/actual incident reported.  At that time, we assess and evaluate the nature and extent of each claim and prepare proof of loss statements to forward to the appropriate party. We initiate settlement discussions with the appropriate party through resolution and provide an account manager and lead subrogation adjuster to the claim. Subrogation Recovery Reports are provided weekly/quarterly—showing the number of cases, total lien amounts pending and total recovery obtained.

George Hills’ Subrogation Division works aggressively to maximize recovery on behalf of our clients. We work to ensure that debts are resolved quickly, while adhering to current law and administrative methods. Our goal is to help debtors achieve long-term compliance and deter non-compliance. We negotiate settlements based on current federal and state laws to obtain the highest possible recovery, and our attorney is available to represent in litigation or negotiate a settlement.
