Subrogor

A party that transfers a claim or legal right to another party. This is often associated with the transfer of the right to be repaid for a debt from one person to another. That is, a creditor can give or sell his/her right to a debt to some third party. In this case, the creditor is the subrogor. See also: Forfaiting, Subrogee.

(164) In order to enforce a right in equitable subrogation the subrogee does not necessarily have to communicate with the subrogor or have the opportunity to control any claim the subrogor is pursuing or could pursue.
There is, however, a subset of subrogation rights that involve either the actual control or potential control of the subrogor's tort claims by the subrogee.
A few of the distinctions are: subrogation secures contribution and indemnity, whereas assignment transfers the entire claim; the consideration in subrogation moves from subrogor to subrogee, whereas in an assignment the consideration flows from assignee to assignor; assignment contemplates the assignee being a volunteer, whereas subrogation rests on a contractual duty to pay; assignment normally covers but a single claim, whereas subrogation may include a number of claims over a specific period of time; subrogation entails a substitution, whereas assignment is an outright transfer.
Under either scenario, insurance law does not protect the insured: there is no duty on the part of an insurer--as subrogee--to settle its subrogor's claim in good faith.
