The firm handles all aspects of recovery practice inclusive of subrogation, indemnification and contribution. We have been successful in representing both domestic and international carriers, third-party administrators and insurance syndicates on a variety of commercial and residential recovery matters. Subrogation matters are primarily handled on a contingency fee basis.
Powers McNalis Teebagy Luongo has considerable experience in subrogating losses in numerous areas, including, but not limited to:
• Construction Defects
• Fire Losses
• Fire Equipment Failures
• Products Liability
• Water Losses and Resulting Damages
• Warranty Claims
• Florida Building Code Violations
Our office maintains a staff devoted solely to subrogation to ensure that these claims are handled with attention, expediency and detail from the commencement of the loss through settlement. Upon determination of viable recovery potential, the subrogation team ensures that these claims are handled as rapidly and effectively as possible. In order to succeed in recovery matters, a subrogation team must execute cost effective, precise and prompt investigations from the onset of the loss.
What sets Powers McNalis Teebagy Luongo apart from other firms is our ability to evaluate a case quickly and obtain high percentage, expedient, recovery results in both pre-suit and litigated matters. Further, we are committed to client service and providing comprehensive and timely reporting. Our team will visit loss sites immediately after a loss to help identify subrogation potential, schedule and organize inspections, determine all possible targets to be notified for inspections, attend inspections with experts and consultants and preserve supporting evidence in order to manage the claim effectively and avoid spoliation arguments in litigation. We work closely with a wide array of well qualified experts to investigate potential sources and areas of recovery.
Our subrogation and recovery team’s objective is to identify, develop, and successfully pursue actionable cases without subjecting our clients to substantial costs. Our goal is to maximize recovery at the earliest possible juncture whether it is through private negotiations, mediation or arbitration; however, our highly experienced trial attorneys handle each file with the same attentiveness as if we were taking the matter to trial. Our attorneys stand ready and willing to go to trial if the matter warrants.
Our firm has tremendous success in handling recovery cases throughout the entire state of Florida and the Southeastern United States. We are always available for consultation, initial opinions on subrogation potential and legal questions regarding recovery and subrogation; and we encourage our clients to call with questions at any time.
We offer complimentary continuing education and training presentations for our clients at any time. The Partners of the subrogation department are approved to instruct continuing education by the Florida Department of Financial Services. Further, the Partners of the subrogation department are members of the National Association of Subrogation Professionals (NASP) and present seminars on subrogation related topics for NASP.
