Claims Adjusters

As every adjuster knows, every claim does NOT need the full gamut of discovery.  My services are best utilized for the “red-flag” claims, including: 

  • high dollar claims
  • "frequent-flyer" claims (claimant is known to file claims often)
  • claims in which immediate family member(s) of your claimant have a current claim
  • claims brought by a disgruntled employee
  • "morphing" claims (body parts and ailments added days or weeks, even months after initial report)
  • claims in which extensive medical treatment is deemed necessary for a relatively minor accident/injury
  • claims brought by new employees to your company
  • claims in which anonymous tips or social media accounts indicate potential dishonesty regarding claimant
  • when court records search shows significant history of litigious and/or criminal behavior 

Early and deliberate research efforts may also assist in avoiding costly litigation.  However, should litigation become a reality for a claim you refer to med discovery+ llc, your attorney representative will have a significant advantage with the discovery process already well underway and the most complete set of pre-injury medical records possible already at hand from the beginning of his/her involvement. 

 I look for prior/subsequent bankruptcies, personal injury lawsuits, workers' compensation claims, other insurance/injury claims, claimant/plaintiff-owned websites and social media accounts, other locations where claimant/plaintiff may have lived/treated, and much more as part of my general file review for recommendations.

  • I understand "doctor-speak" and what is written "between the lines" in medical providers' notes that may indicate suspicion for malingering, substance abuse, drug-seeking behaviors, or even fraud.
  • Obtaining all relevant medical imaging studies is EXTREMELY important when planning an independent medical evaluation (IME) - as important as having all the relevant medical records - but how often do your claimants/plaintiffs actually gather and bring them to the IME?  And when they don't, what recourse do you have??  Gathering these studies proactively and delivering them to the IME timely saves having to do it later anyway, which requires an addendum IME and further delays claim resolution...every delay in resolution increases costs!! 

Insurance Carriers, Self-Insured Employers, Risk Managers

Optimal research requires focus and minimal distraction.  Claims adjusters rarely have those luxuries as they are the front-line interface between you and your customer, the claimant.  I will work directly with your staff claims adjusters or third-party administrators, either in-house or virtually, for their Alaska workers’ compensation and/or casualty/personal injury caseload, so they can remain available for what they do best – providing helpful service to claimants while keeping an eye on your bottom line!
