Door Injury Cases - Pertaining to the Insurance Carrier


Mike Panish has published a new article with advice to insurance carriers with regard to door injury claims that they are involved in or defending. When you have a claim involving a door related injury at your insured's premises or your insured has provided door services or product to that premises - you need an expert you can count on to give you ALL the information you need to analyze your claim and exposure. You cannot get the same results by using a one-size-fits-all expert that your attorney may have used in the past on a construction claim.

"Get the best expert involved at the beginning stages of the door injury claim to thoroughly analyze your obligation and potential exposure."

"Don't hire an expert based on the lowest hourly rate or smallest retention deposit"

"Thoroughly evaluate your experts' credentials and past experience with that particular type of door claim."
