RECOVERY AND SUBROGATION

Watson Law Group’s recovery practice consists of attorneys who have come to WLG follows years of experience representing plaintiffs in construction defect, medical malpractice, products liability and personal injury claims. Our background in both sides of litigation allows us to aggressively pursue subrogation and recovery as well as appreciate all potential resolution strategies while defending our clients.

As insurers know, subrogation claims often involve multiple potentially responsible parties and divergent areas of law. Therefore, it is important that the firm chosen to pursue subrogation have experience in a multitude of practice areas as well as having experience bringing claims. On behalf of our insurance clients and their insureds, our attorneys have pursued subrogation, contribution and indemnity based litigation within the scope of various areas of laws, including: construction; products liability; professional liability; business litigation; premises liability litigation; transportation; and trucking litigation.

The goal of Watson Law Group’s extensive subrogation practice is to increase the amount of subrogation recovery for our clients. With that goal in mind, our attorneys are prepared to visit loss sites and coordinate subrogation efforts from the time our clients first learn of a loss. We strive to provide timely and comprehensive evaluations of subrogation potential so that our clients can make informed decisions regarding subrogation. Although subrogation potential is always enhanced by early involvement, Watson Law Group welcomes the opportunity to assist clients with subrogation efforts at any stage of a claim.
