Combating Low-Impact Insurance Claims
Nov 3, 2020

Frustration is what we hear throughout the industry when confronting bodily injury claims emanating from low-impact collisions. The damages are so minor, common sense screams “No one could have been injured.” Yet, because liability is clear or they want to avoid litigation expenses, insurers settle these claims with substantial sums every day. This presentation provides a process to attack these suspect claims with a consistent investigative and dispositive strategy at an early stage. Focus will not center around the analysis of medical records concerning treatment of subjective complaints of soft-tissue injuries. Rather, the presentation will assess the element of causation and the credibility of the claimant. Attendees will be provided with a clear game plan on how to approach these claims in a way that will contain costs, reduce indemnification, and avoid litigation.
