Claim Assistance


The attorneys in LGWM’s Insurance Coverage Practice Group work directly with insurance claims analysts to provide outside claims handling assistance. In this capacity, our attorneys communicate directly with insureds, claimants, and counsel on behalf of the carrier to assist in obtaining full details of insurance claims that are relevant to assessing coverage and evaluating liability and assisting the carrier in setting reserves.


The LGWM coverage team often works closely with loss adjusters to ensure the legitimacy of insurance claims. We regularly interact with the insurance brokers who procured the coverage and the underwriters who underwrote the risk. Our attorneys provide valuable assistance in the resolution of insurance claims by gathering the necessary information to evaluate claim exposure and set indemnity and defense reserves, and then evaluate and negotiate potential settlements to ensure a fair settlement for the insurance company client.
