Provides pre-claim and risk mitigation consultation for small firms and solo practitioners
Lisle, IL (Law Firm Newswire) May 16, 2012 - In an era of complex litigation, advice and counsel before a potential claim arises goes a long way towards mitigating risk. As part of its value-added services to lawyers' professional liability customers, AmerInst Professional Services, Ltd. and A. M. Best "A" rated insurance carrier, United States Fire Insurance Company (part of Crum & Forster insurance group), have launched a new hotline that allows policyholders to seek advice prior to submitting a claim.
This is one of an array of services offered to small law firms and solo practitioners through the Protexure Lawyers' program. The policyholder hotline is staffed by experienced independent attorneys who are dedicated to defending lawyers' professional liability claims.
"Our goal is to advise and help firms understand and manage their risks. That is why our hotline is such an important policyholder resource," says Kyle Nieman, President and CEO of AmerInst Professional Services, Ltd. "One phone call could reduce professional liability risk and provide a first defense in managing a potential situation before a claim arises."
Consultation with a hotline attorney is on a confidential basis. Policyholders will be provided with a toll free number to call on Monday through Friday between 8:30 AM and 5:00 PM. Calls will be returned within one business day.
Every lawyer - even a solo practitioner - deserves to have a professional liability policy that protects their business and provides coverage that is tailored to meet their needs. For more information about Protexure Lawyers, visit www.prolaw123.com.
