Marie Cheung-Truslow, Esq. focuses her trial and appellate practice concentrating on complex, high stakes litigation, with particular emphasis on insurance coverage disputes, arson/fraud investigation, examination under oath, reference and appraisal proceedings, class action prosecution and defense, multiple line large loss subrogation, and bad faith litigation.
Cheung-Truslow co-authored a chapter in the New Appleman on Insurance Law Library Edition, a LexisNexis publication considered to be the most comprehensive source for insurance law. Chapter 160, entitled “Bringing Subrogation Actions” addresses an insurer’s and self-insured’s rights to recover amounts it has paid for losses on its policies by means of subrogation. Subrogation is distinguished from restitution, reimbursement, liens and assignments against third parties and its own insureds. This chapter deals with who has the right to pursue a subrogation action, when such actions are allowed, and against whom such actions may be brought.
Attorney Cheng-Truslow’s national subrogation practice offers services covering the first notice of loss all the way through trial, verdict or settlement, and judgment enforcement. Her firm handles large and mid-size losses throughout the United States, utilizing an extensive network of forensic experts, consultants, and trial firms. Her firm prosecutes subrogation claims caused by fire and explosions, water losses, structural defects, contractor liability, and product, appliance, equipment and machinery failures.
