Construction defect claims often are complicated by a variety of issues, including those related to the statute of repose and contractual bars to recovery. In order to maximize the subrogation potential for these claims, you should deconstruct any potential subrogation barriers and, upon identifying a potential target, avoid procedural barriers that impact the pursuit of subrogation claims. When you receive a construction-related claim, you should immediately identify potential subrogation targets, such as the architect, general contractor, subcontractors, the developer, and material suppliers.
