Subrogation appears commonly in construction contracts, insurance contracts, suretyship and negotiable instrument law. Subrogation rights are regularly exercised by insurance companies, guarantors and bonding companies who achieve the right to step into the shoes of the party of whom they compensate and sue any party whom the compensated party could have sued.

Many of Martin & Seibert, L.C.'s subrogation cases derive from personal lines of insurance from the leading insurance carriers in the industry (see client list). Martin & Seibert, L.C. also handles many commercial claims from claims services corporations who are unable to use the arbitration forum for dispute resolution.

Subrogation cases are accepted for disputes throughout the entire state of West Virginia, the northern counties of Virginia, and the western counties of Maryland. Martin & Seibert, L.C. is a member of the National Association of Subrogation Professionals.
