There is no doubt that since 1995, the way subrogation is viewed by insurance companies has changed dramatically. Subrogation has evolved from a philosophy of “found money”, to a “bottom line” philosophy that demands only the best and talented subrogation counsel in the industry, and we have delivered on our promise to our clients to exceed their everyday expectations.

The firm focuses its entire practice and personnel on subrogation. We handle no other types of cases. Cases handled by the firm include the simplest of auto cases where the firm deploys experienced auto case recovery attorneys, to product claims involving known defects in household, commercial, and other types of products, to catastrophic fire cases involving high-profile athletes and high-wealth individuals, both of which have their own level of demands. Not only do we assist our insurance clients in recovering what they have paid out on a claim, we have also been successful in working with our clients’ insureds in recovering their deductibles, and any uninsured or excess losses. We leave no one behind! The firm continues to handle subrogation cases with losses ranging from $2,000 to more than $3 million.

Don’t be caught up in thinking you need a large national law firm to handle your subrogation cases in Texas. In fact, our firm employs around the same number of attorneys and staff as a well-known national firm, and utilizes many of the same resources. What you will get with this law firm is maximum recoveries on your cases, while receiving prompt, courteous, and personal service tailored to your needs and goals.

Fire and explosion losses give rise to the potential for subrogation recovery more often than any other commercial or personal lines claim event. From claim evaluation and site investigation, to settlement or verdict, we stay heavily involved every step of the way to determine the most appropriate course of action for recovery.

We have established relationships with a large network of cause-and-origin experts, engineers, and other key industry experts to preserve and protect sensitive evidence in order to achieve a successful recovery. The firm handles subrogation cases from small car fires, to catastrophic fire and flood cases with losses ranging from less than $100,000 to more than $20 million.

One key to successful subrogation is the immediate involvement and on-site investigation of a subrogation lawyer. As time passes, insurers face more obstacles and miss more opportunities that can diminish the insurer’s recovery value. Most defendants are looking to make a spoliation argument or disturb critical evidence at the scene. Our attorneys and investigators aim to be at the scene of the loss within hours. Examining evidence is vital in determining the cause of loss. Fire and explosion cases demand experienced and proven subrogation counsel. Maximizing your recovery depends on it.

  • Code compliance
  • Electrical, mechanical and sprinkler system failures
  • Fire and explosion spread theories
  • Immediately retaining and dispatching the proper experts from the moment a loss occurs
  • Preserving and protecting crucial evidence at the scene of the loss
