Subrogor is someone whose rights are acquired by another (subrogee) as a result of subrogation, usually by transferring the legal right to collect a claim to another in exchange for payment of the debt or expense associated with the claim by the transferor. An insured is a typical subrogor whose right to claim against a tortfeasor is acquired by an insurance company after he or she has received payment of an insurance claim from the insurance company.
