What is subrogation?

Subrogation is the right of reimbursement for benefits paid arising out of an accident for which a third party is responsible to make payments.

ORC 4123.93 et.sep. allows BWC the right of reimbursement from a third party, for the cost of benefits paid, or to be paid, to or on behalf of the injured worker.

The third party can be an individual, a corporation, an insurance company, a public or private entity, i.e. political subdivision, or public or private program that is or may be liable to make payments to a person.
