life insurance subrogationCurrently, under Virginia law the surviving spouse can collect both from the insurance company for the life insurance proceeds and from the tortfeasor.  This can be remedied by allowing subrogation of life insurance claims where negligence occurred causing the death of the insured.  Furthermore, insurers could begin placing a subrogation clause in the life insurance contracts of the insured to lay the foundation for future subrogation claims.
