We best serve our clients’ interests by conducting an expeditious and economical investigation at the outset of a claim or case such that we can evaluate the situation at the first opportunity. Carriers generally benefit from prompt resolution of claims and cases. Far too often an investigation or litigation proceeds on an endless time schedule when parties have neglected to realistically explore settlement at their first opportunity. Certainly, it makes more sense to explore resolution early in the litigation rather than waiting until the eve of trial after a good deal of resources have already been expended.
