Practical Law may have moderated questions and answers before publication. No answer to a question is legal advice and no lawyer-client relationship is created between the person asking the question and the person answering it. Where appropriate, you should consult your own lawyer for legal advice. Practical Law's employees are not practising solicitors or barristers. The Ask scope and rules apply.

Can an insurer pursue a subrogated claim in its own name where the insured refuses to cooperate?

Can an insurer issue a court claim for subrogated loss - stating simply the insurer's name alone as being the claimant?  We act for an insurance company that wants to claim (from the proposed defendant) repair fees which the insurance company has paid.  However, the insured is not co-operating and won't sign the court papers.
