Non-Standard Auto Insurance Subrogation

 Tuesday, September 4, 2018

Even non-standard auto insurers enjoy getting checks in the mail. The effective subrogation of Med Pay, PIP, UM/UIM, and collision claims by non-standard auto insurers means money coming into a segment of the insurance industry that historically has been much better at paying it out. The reasons this segment of the insurance industry has been somewhat subrogation-challenged are many but is emphasized by the fact that the non-standard auto insurance market is highly-specialized, geographically-segregated, and transaction heavy. It’s time for non-standard auto carriers to aggressively step up their subrogation game and pursue those responsible for causing losses and claims and return those claim dollars to the carriers that paid them and insureds who desperately need them.
