ISMIE Claims Division Continues Defense Work for Policyholders During Pandemic

January 12, 2021

A steep backlog of court cases is one of the many unexpected side effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. In fact, there hasn’t been a civil jury trial in a Cook County courtroom for more than nine months and it’s a similar situation in counties throughout Illinois and the nation.

ISMIE’s Claims Division believes that every dedicated medical professional and entity we insure deserves a strategic, vigorous and uncompromising defense. ISMIE will not simply settle a claim or lawsuit because we’re tired of waiting for the courts or to avoid the costs of litigation. We have legal strategies proven in some of the most litigious counties in the nation – Cook, Madison and St. Clair counties in Illinois. Our team-based approach for strong claims defense strategy has resulted in a defense verdict average of more than 90% for the past five years.

In 2020, ISMIE processed almost 13,000 loss history requests for policyholders, provided assistance on 860 depositions and offered support to policyholders in 18 states. Our innovative staff is responsive to the ever-changing needs brought on by the pandemic and is utilizing technology to keep the process moving.

ISMIE supports its policyholders inside and outside the courtroom. For more information about what ISMIE’s Claims Division can do to support you, please email us.
