State Specific Series – The Great State of Utah – The Beehive State


Subrogation professionals who handle losses in multiple states know that the viability of a subrogation case will vary depending on the loss location. The facts of a particular incident may have subrogation potential in one state, but not in another, as each state has varying rules that impact subrogation potential, including statutes of repose, comparative fault, and malfunction theory. As a result, it is imperative that a subrogation professional understands the state specific rules in which the loss occurred. In this first episode of our State Specific Series, regular co-hosts Joe Rich and David Brisco are joined by Utah subrogation attorneys Kris Cherevas and Phil Carroll to discuss common losses that occur in Utah as well as the unique Utah laws as it pertains to evaluating subrogation potential. We will also test our attorneys’ knowledge of The Beehive State by weaving in state specific trivia.
