Personal Injury Subrogation, continued

Last October I wrote about Walmart asserting a subrogation claim against one of its employees who had made a recovery in a personal injury case.  The case is an example of how many cases can become difficult, if not impossible, to resolve because of the subrogation claims.

This problem is picking up a little steam in the non-legal blogosphere.  This week, the case has been the subject of the following posts:

These type of subrogation problems arise in almost every personal injury case.  In fact, we often spend more time trying to resolve the subrogation claims than trying to resolve the underlying injury claims.  It is my hope that the issue will continue to get coverage in the popular press, and we might see some legislative action to make the situation more equitable.  We certainly aren’t going to see much relief from the courts.
