State Specific Series – Louisiana: Let the Good Subro Times Roll


The viability of a subrogation case will vary depending on the loss location and the facts.  The combination of law and fact in one state can yield subrogation potential, whereas in another that mix can be detrimental. Each of the States have varying rules that impact subrogation potential, including statutes of limitations, comparative fault, and requirements for pursuing products claims. It therefore becomes critical to know the state specific rules as you evaluate the recovery prospects of a loss.  In this latest episode of our State Specific Series, regular co-hosts Joe Rich and David Brisco are joined by Louisiana subrogation attorney Jake Skaggs to discuss the unique history of the legal system in Louisiana and to discuss common losses, the “new” Statute of Limitations, comparative fault rules and some insights into pursuing products liability claims.  As we will be doing throughout this series, we will also test our attorneys’ knowledge of Louisiana by weaving in state specific trivia.
