Cost Containment of Legal Fees for Large Loss Claims: Best Practices, Auditing for Compliance, Negotiation, and Recovery of Excessive Fees

Many companies involved in prolonged litigation bear the weight of annual legal fees ranging from $1 million to well in excess of $100 million. Costs frequently spiral out of control without regard to value; however, legal fees and costs can be managed. By employing well-accepted industry best practices, costs can be reduced by 15 percent to 25 percent.

This webinar will focus on how insurance companies can save millions of dollars by having the correct guidelines in place with the law firms they hire to defend and indemnify their claims.

Learning Objectives:

  • Become familiar with basic billing guidelines, learn the benefits of having guidelines in place, and find out the issues with using unclear billing guidelines;

  • Learn to apply billing guidelines with a sample legal bill;

  • Discuss challenges faced by claims adjusters who conduct legal bill reviews, and learn about issues that arise from employing an e-billing system without the help of legal bill reviewers; and

  • Discover the cost benefits to creating a framework in which to control legal spending based on billing practices and industry standards.

Learning Objectives:

  • Review data breaches and breach trends;

The Impact of Collision-Avoidance Technologies on Insurance Losses and the Future of Crashing

Technologies aimed at stopping vehicles from crashing are increasingly common. The Highway Loss Data Institute has been evaluating the impact of these systems on insurance losses for several years. This session will highlight important findings and discuss the evolution of the underlying technologies. Key components to understanding how collision-avoidance systems will impact the insurance industry in the future are understanding how many vehicles currently have them and how long it will take for most vehicles to get them. This session will include a look at recent projections for the fitment of these systems in the U.S. vehicle fleet.

Learning Objectives:

  • Inform participants of the effect of collision-avoidance systems on insurance losses;

  • Inform participants of the current and future prevalence of collision-avoidance systems in the U.S. vehicle fleet; and

  • Inform participants of issues that might impact the future prevalence of collision-avoidance systems in the U.S. vehicle fleet.

Preventing Property Insurance Fraud

The potential for fraudulent claims is a concern for all insurance companies, but it doesn’t have to be. In this webinar, Gerald T. Albrecht, partner at Butler Pappas, will help you learn what steps you can take to educate yourself about fraudulent property insurance claims and prevent them from happening to you. You will learn specifically about claims that are subject to denial based on a breach of the misrepresentation or concealment provision in the policy or various application defenses/rescission statutes. You will also learn how to defend your company against this type of claim.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn the basic elements of the concealment and fraud policy defense;

  • Understand the basic elements of the application defenses/rescission of the insurance policy for omissions and misstatements; and

  • Find out more about the practical effects of these claims as well as what witnesses and facts are needed in order to defeat a potentially fraudulent property insurance claim.
