Shumsky and Backman


Shumsky & Backman is a full service subrogation firm serving the needs of insurance professionals throughout the Pacific Northwest. The firm is routinely involved in cases throughout the states of Oregon, Washington, California, Alaska and Idaho.  We work closely with our clients to achieve their recovery objectives.

We are actively involved in all aspects of subrogation from immediate “on-site” assistance on large losses through trial.  Shumsky & Backman is actively involved in providing insurers with a variety of services designed to simplify subrogation claims handling and to maximize recovery potential before a lawsuit is filed.

We routinely speak and write on emerging legal issues pertinent to subrogation.  Our “on-site” assistance includes identification and retention of locally qualified experts.  Shumsky & Backman’s service continues with an initial evaluation of recovery potential and review of previously closed files.  Our services are designed to assist the insurance professional’s decision on the type and amount of resources that should be devoted to recovery efforts for a particular loss.
