After letting your insurance company know of a property loss, the policy may require you to “Tender the Defense” of any claims arising out of the loss to the insurance company. This requirement allows the insurance company to employ an attorney to participate in the settlement and litigation of any claims against you by third parties.
Also once your insurance company compensates you for the loss, you must give up the right to pursue third parties for compensation of the loss the insurance company has paid. This is called a “Subrogation Right” – enabling the insurance company to be paid for its compensation to you by recovering from any third party that had a part in the loss.
