On June 8-10, 2014 the OneBeacon Government Risks team attended the 2014 National Public Risk Management Association (PRIMA) conference in Long Beach, CA. Dennis Molenaar’s presentation “Preparing for Litigation When an Accident Happen” was a big hit with over 90 people in attendance! Molenaar’s presentation was geared towards risk managers knowing exactly what steps to take to prepare for disputing an insurance claim. Major points included:
- Winning over the jury, Dennis believes that the outcome of cases are strongly based on how the jury feels
- Developing the most favorable evidence for your case
- How to complete a thorough investigation
- Avoiding negligence of hiring, training, employee retention…etc.
- Always provide documentation and photographic evidence, when possible
