Bruce H. Rogers has a regional trial and appellate practice focused primarily on insurance subrogation for large commercial and industrial properties that have sustained collision, fire, explosion, hurricane or other severe weather, corrosion, arcing, or other damage leading to a property insurance claim. He also engages in property insurance coverage assessment and defense. He is a partner in the firm and has been active in the insurance subrogation and coverage practice for 18 years.
Mr. Rogers’ subrogation practice includes the investigation of property losses; the assessment of the potential of liability on the part of third parties, consideration of factors that might limit recovery such as contract terms or contributory negligence; advising his clients on the likelihood of recovery, and bringing claims in state and federal court to seek a judicial determination of liability. Mr. Rogers has argued before Texas State Courts of Appeals and the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit.
While primarily involved in losses occurring in Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Kansas, and Mississippi, Mr. Rogers has also handled disputes arising from losses in a number of other states as well as the Caribbean, and South America.
Prior to becoming a lawyer, Mr. Rogers worked as a professional engineer in Canada in refinery process design and in Canada, the United States, and around the world in sales, marketing, product management, and product development for businesses engaged in the pipeline and cathodic protection industries.
