Workers Comp Subrogation - A Risk Management Diary

A few posts ago I analyzed the Workers Compensation adjuster situation in handling third party liability claims. In defense of the Workers Comp adjuster, a requirement for the job is NOT a background in liability claims. That is an understood fact.

What can a Risk Manager or company officer do to possibly track the outcomes of an accident where a third party may be liable for a reimbursement for all or part of a Workers Comp claim? I would suggest setting up a subrogation diary to track the outcomes of a liability claim against the third party. As I said in the last post, we have noticed in our file performance reviews that subrogation or subro is/has not been properly handled in the claims.

The subro diary can be easily interfaced with any of the diary programs such as Microsoft Outlook(r). The main thing is to track if and when the subrogation claim is being pursued and how the funds have been handled along with how the insurance carrier has reported the reimbursement to the rating bureaus.

I try not to do very long posts. I will stop there. If you have any more questions on a subro diary, please drop me an email at
