Subrogation is a process in which Travelers seeks to recover funds on your behalf from the party responsible for the loss. Subrogation assigns blame where it belongs and ensures responsible parties are held accountable for their actions. Consider why your loss happened. What caused your faucet or toilet to leak? Why would a coffee maker catch on fire? We will be evaluating this information when reviewing the facts of your loss. It is this philosophy that allows us to recover payment from parties responsible for our customers' losses.
