Subrogation Recovery

A telecommunications utility with 3,400 vehicles uses ARI’s Accident Management and Subrogation program to help mitigate the cost impact of accidents.

Fleet Background

A telecommunications utility with 3,400 vehicles uses ARI’s Accident Management and Subrogation program to help mitigate the cost impact of accidents.

 

Objective

ARI works on behalf of our client to recover the damages sustained as part of any auto accident when the client driver is not at-fault for the incident.  The industry standard is to pursue the cost of the collision repairs, any rental fees incurred while the vehicle was in the shop, and any tow/storage charges. With our program, ARI goes a step further and pursues any and all related expenses we think the client is legally entitled to claim.

 

Approach

In one particular incident, one of the client’s vehicles sustained collision damage after an accident. There were no other related direct expenses. An ARI subrogation specialist identified an opportunity to submit an additional claim for “Loss of Use.” This figure is a formula-based representation of what the client should have been entitled to for temporary transportation and the value of the unit downtime. Although insurance companies have a tendency to dispute these claims, ARI was able to successfully advocate on behalf of the client.

152% Recovery rate of actual damage cost

$166,140 Or 126% in cumulative recovery on all claims

Amount ARI was able to recover the full amount of the vehicle repair and the loss of use

Projected Savings/ Benefits and Results to Date

Through the tireless pursuit of the claim by our subrogation specialist, ARI was able to recover the full amount of the vehicle repair and the loss of use, resulting in a recovery rate of 152% of actual damage cost for this particular vehicle. The additional pursuit of loss of use on all claims for this client has resulted in cumulative recovery on all claims reaching 126%, or $166,140. By understanding how crucial downtime can be to utility vehicles under repairs, ARI’s subrogation specialists work on behalf of our clients to mitigate any negative impact to their fleets resulting from vehicular accidents.
