At the law office of Brian G. Miller Co., L.P.A., in Columbus, Ohio, we provide expert legal assistance for clients who have been involved in subrogation claims. Subrogation in a legal context relates to the right of one person to substitute into the place of another to pursue recovery of monies or some other claim. This can apply to many areas such as car accidents, uninsured motorists' claims, properly losses, and the like. Typically, especially in the context of auto accidents and other personal injury claims, one insurance company is attempting to make a recovery from another insurance company. For instance, if a health insurance company has made payments toward the medical bills of an auto accident victim, that health insurance company would typically have a right to pursue a subrogation claim, in order to be reimbursed for any amounts it paid, from a potential settlement involving the automobile liability insurance carrier for the at-fault driver.
At Miller Law, we have experience in negotiating subrogation interests from the perspective of each of the parties involved. We can assist with best positioning your interests for recovery.
Attorney Brian G. Miller has years of experience in managing subrogation claims from the perspective of his injured clients. Such clients benefit when subrogation claims are minimized because their net recovery will increase. Brian Miller's trusted experience as a lawyer has allowed him the opportunity to represent insurance companies and other parties with respect to subrogation interests. These clients' goal is to maximize their subrogation recovery amount. Because of his perspective gained from arguing both sides of the issues involved, Mr. Miller has developed an understanding of the strengths and weaknesses that the respective parties may have, given the facts involved. Often these matters involve an effective analysis of how to most efficiently resolve issues while minimizing costs and increasing net recovery. Again, experience plays a key role in the ability to do this.
An understanding of the law and the leverage it may create for one side or the other is also critical. In Ohio for instance, the essential elimination of the make-whole doctrine has strengthened insurance companies' abilities to recover on subrogation claims. Subrogation rights are typically founded in contractual language and/or statutory law. Experience assists with an understanding of the rights created under such contract language and laws. An understanding of the interrelationship between state law and federal law is also something Miller Law can provide.
Most states differ in their particular subrogation laws, so it is important to choose a lawyer well-versed in local laws. Our experience with local laws and with the local courts also enable us to serve effectively as local counsel for out-of-the-area attorneys who need assistance with claims filed in and around Columbus, Ohio.
