A.Word.A.Daywith Anu Garg
verb tr.: To substitute one person or entity for another in a legal claim.
From Latin subrogare, from sub- (in place of) + rogare (to ask, propose a law). Ultimately from the Indo-European root reg- (to move in a straight line, to lead, or to rule), which also gave us regent, regime, direct, rectangle, erect, rectum, alert, source, surge, abrogate, arrogate, and derogate. Earliest documented use: 1427.
“Contact your renter’s insurance carrier, who should take care of you and then subrogate against the other unit owner or the association.”
