Subrogation Defense

In addition to prosecution of claims on behalf of insurance carriers for subrogation and reimbursement, Ramey & Kampf also provides defense to subrogation lawsuits brought against your insureds.

In-depth knowledge of subrogation law in combination with our experience in the defense of liability claims has resulted in a strategic advantage in resolving claims early in the process.

Ultimately, if a subrogation claim is not resolved through negotiation, the legitimacy of the claim and amount of damages must be proven to a jury. Typically, the firms pursuing subrogation have little to no actual trial experience, or even desire to actually litigate the matter much less proceed to trial.

At Ramey & Kampf, our aggressive approach to defending liability claims is applied to the defense of subrogation claims. In addition to defending issues of liability, we attack the basis for the amounts of damage and decision-making process involved.

Early resolution is often the result of our motion for summary judgment based upon affirmative defenses to include; real party in interest, anti-subrogation rule, waivers of subrogation, co-insured doctrine, made whole rule, economic loss rule, exculpatory and limitation of liability clauses, contributory and comparative negligence, assumption of risk, last clear chance, apportionment of fault, statutes of limitation and repose.

We are skilled at evaluating the strengths and weaknesses of any particular case and giving our clients informed advice regarding negotiated settlement or outcome if the matter proceeds to trial.
