Subrogation is the legal doctrine whereby one person takes over the rights or remedies of a creditor against his/her debtor. Under subrogation law, subrogation rights can arise by agreement typically as part of an insurance contract.
If an insured has a covered loss and submits a claim to his/her insurance company, then the insurance company will investigate the loss to determine, among other things, if a third party is responsible for all or part of the loss. For example, if your car is damaged in an accident and the other car’s driver caused the accident, then your insurance company will typically pay the insured’s loss to the extent that it is covered and the insurance company becomes subrogated to the insured¹s rights against the wrongdoer.
