HEALTHCARE SUBROGATION SERVICES

Healthcare, workers' comp, and disability subrogation claims represent a significant source of financial recovery for payors and providers of any health plan. However, a multitude of challenges can arise in identifying and successfully prosecuting these claims. It's critical to hire a legal professional to help you navigate.

HOSPITAL LIENS

Medical liens are a critical tool for recouping costs. Most state laws grant hospitals lien rights to recover costs for treating patients injured by third-party negligence. When properly perfected, the lien attaches to the judgment or settlement of any negligence cause of action involving the injury.

We are the only vendor endorsed by Texas Hospital Association and TORCH Management Services, Inc. to pursue hospital liens & healthcare subrogation claims.

FIRE, WATER & PROPERTY DAMAGE

Subrogation rights are vital to the financial stability of the insurance industry. For property and casualty insurers, recouping losses through subrogation is an essential part of staying in business.

It's critical to choose the right partner to successfully handle these claims. We have extensive experience handling subrogation issues involving fire damage, floods and other types of property damage involving negligence

SECURITY SYSTEMS

Security systems don't always function as they should. When they fail, they leave vulnerable the properties they are supposed to protect. Insurers end up bearing the losses resulting from burglaries and break-ins.

In these all-too-common situations, subrogation claims are a means for insurers to hold security or alarm companies accountable. As an insurer, you may be able to recover your losses from the third party whose negligence contributed to the loss.
