Claims Information

The cornerstone of any claims service is a superior knowledge of the legal environment in order to protect the assets and business reputation of our members, through fairly and efficiently resolving the claims brought against our members. Expertise: Our claims department is staffed with seasoned professionals. Because we specialize in medical professional liability, we understand the unique risks that our members experience in providing health care services. Investigation:
  • Prompt thorough gathering of the facts and circumstances surrounding an incident.
  • Insured Involvement
  • When appropriate, contact with the injured party within 24 hours of the initial report.
  • Judicious utilization of medical experts.
Evaluation: Having the expertise to properly evaluate the facts and circumstances surrounding a claim is essential to prompt fair resolution. For large exposure claims, we utilize a “Committee Review,” which involves a round table discussion of the case. This process includes the claims consultant, defense counsel, members of HPIC senior management staff as well as input from the Insured and/or their representative. Resolution: As a result of the evaluation process, a number of resolution strategies are considered.
  • Negotiated Withdrawal
  • Settlement
  • Mediation
  • Trial
The insured will be kept apprised of claim developments and strategies for resolution.
