SFM 2012 subrogation recoveries exceed $1 million
BLOOMINGTON, Minn., April 11, 2013—SFM finished 2012 with $1.1 million in subrogation recoveries for the year.
In 63 percent of claims with recovery potential, SFM was able to recover 100 percent of the workers' compensation payments made, said Special Investigations Team Lead Chris Sandilla.
"We didn't have any single huge claim with recovery potential in 2012, so this million was earned by making a lot of recoveries on a lot of claims," she said.
Most work accidents involving a negligent third party are related to vehicle collisions. Other claims with recoveries include dog bites, construction accidents, slips-falls, and criminal restitution cases.
