83.61. Notwithstanding section 83.57, where the Société compensates a person by reason of an accident that occurred in Québec, it is subrogated to the person’s rights and is entitled to recover the indemnities and the capital value of the pensions that the Société is required to pay from any person not resident in Québec who is responsible for the accident to the extent that he is responsible therefor and from any person liable for compensation for bodily injury caused in the accident by such non-resident.
The subrogation is effected of right by the decision of the Société to compensate the victim.
The remedy of the Société as subrogee is subject to decision of the court and is prescribed by three years from the date of the decision.
Responsibility is determined according to the ordinary rules of law to the extent that sections 108 to 114 do not derogate therefrom.
