Defending Self-Insurance Claims For Companies

Self insurance is a unique beast. If you are part of a self insured company, you know what that means. Our team of lawyers has a unique approach to advising our clients on whether and how to set up their self insurance and how to handle claims as they come in.

Self insurance is a form of risk management that operates as a bet. The bet is that the monetary value of your claims is less than the premiums you pay. It is not right for all companies, but it is a great strategy for some.

Not all self insurance is created equally. One form of risk might be appropriate for self insurance in one industry (or for one company within an industry), but wholly inappropriate for another.

If you are in a position where a claim is being made against your company, you need a law firm that knows how to handle these types of cases, and you need a law firm that won’t feed your case into its gigantic billing machine.

The make-or-break moment on your risk management strategy often comes when the self-insured company is faced with a claim. You can’t just hand over the file to an insurance defense law firm and let it handle the case on its dime.

Take Action

When you face a claim, you need a defense lawyer with a proven track record of developing a smart, efficient litigation strategy. You need a firm to defend the self-insurance claim that treats your dollars like it would its own.

At Slinde Nelson in Portland, Oregon, we know how to defend claims against your company and we know how to do it efficiently. Give us a call at 503-567-1234 to arrange a free initial consultation. Or, if you prefer, complete the brief online form.
