Automobile Insurance Subrogation: In All 50 States is the most thorough, comprehensive, and ambitious anthology of subrogation-related legal information and insurance resources ever put to paper. It is the last and most anticipated of the subrogation trilogy, and a book which will serve as the “bible” for any insurance company writing personal lines or commercial auto policies. It is destined to become the standard work and reference for attorneys, insurance companies, and subrogation industry professionals. Every year there are more than 7 million auto accidents in the United States with a financial toll of more than $300 billion. Nearly 3 million people are injured and 42,636 people are killed. In the overwhelming majority of these accidents there is at least one party at fault. For virtually every one of these accidents, a policy of automobile insurance provides some sort of claim payments or benefits. In the vast majority of those claims, one or more insurance policies and/or applicable state law grants the insurer a right of subrogation against a negligent third party whose carelessness caused the accident. This book is the bible on subrogating those claims. This book covers the nuts and bolts of auto subrogation in all 50 states, covering every topic imaginable -- including PIP, Med Pay, UM/UIM, property claims, deductible reimbursement, no-fault subrogation and more. It surveys the laws of every state and provides descriptions of every type of auto coverage imaginable, as well as the statutory, case law, and regulatory authority governing every aspect of auto subrogation. If you have subrogation responsibility involving auto claims, you need this book. It universally covers issues which are indelibly interwoven into the business of auto insurance, including a complete treatment of the laws of all 50 states and the District of Columbia relating to: • Basic and Statutory Subrogation Rights • Mandatory vs. Optional Insurance Coverage • No-Fault Laws, PIP, Mini-Torts, and Loss Transfer Laws • Tort Limitations • Medical Payments Coverage and Subrogation • Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage and Subrogation • Collision/Property Subrogation • Release of Tortfeasor by Insured • Accord and Satisfaction: Accepting Partial Payments from Tortfeasor • Made Whole Doctrine • Common Fund Doctrine • Economic Loss Doctrine • Deductible Recovery and Reimbursement • Collateral Source Rule • Contributory Negligence/Comparative Fault • Seat Belt Laws and Defenses • Rental Cars, Loaner Vehicles, and Test Drivers • Bailment/Parking Lot Liability • Negligent Entrustment • Facing Multiple Claims In Excess of Liability Policy Limits • Conflict of Laws/Interstate Subrogation • Recovery of Attorney’s Fees and Costs • Statutes of Limitations It is a complete treatment -- A to Z -- of virtually every issue which the insurance claims or subrogation professional will face in the area of automobile insurance. It is like no legal treatise ever written and promises to be the most used reference in any insurance company.

#1 New York Times Bestseller With extraordinary access to the West Wing, Michael Wolff reveals what happened behind-the-scenes in the first nine months of the most controversial presidency of our time in Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House. Since Donald Trump was sworn in as the 45th President of the United States, the country—and the world—has witnessed a stormy, outrageous, and absolutely mesmerizing presidential term that reflects the volatility and fierceness of the man elected Commander-in-Chief. This riveting and explosive account of Trump’s administration provides a wealth of new details about the chaos in the Oval Office, including: -- What President Trump’s staff really thinks of him -- What inspired Trump to claim he was wire-tapped by President Obama -- Why FBI director James Comey was really fired -- Why chief strategist Steve Bannon and Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner couldn’t be in the same room -- Who is really directing the Trump administration’s strategy in the wake of Bannon’s firing -- What the secret to communicating with Trump is -- What the Trump administration has in common with the movie The Producers Never before in history has a presidency so divided the American people. Brilliantly reported and astoundingly fresh, Fire and Fury shows us how and why Donald Trump has become the king of discord and disunion. “Essential reading.”—Michael D’Antonio, author of Never Enough: Donald Trump and the Pursuit of Success, CNN.com “Not since Harry Potter has a new book caught fire in this way...[Fire and Fury] is indeed a significant achievement, which deserves much of the attention it has received.”—The Economist
