  • Second Counsel

    In complex cases, or certain high exposure cases, AEIX may retain the services of attorneys with national practices who have significant experience taking catastrophic claims to trial on a frequent basis. These attorneys work with local defense counsel to provide additional help in finding experts, participate in mock trials and motions practice, and may join the defense team to help the insured obtain the best outcomes possible. They also participate in claim and risk management seminars provided to AEIX members. Several AEIX members have enjoyed great success with AEIX “second counsel,” and have begun hiring them directly to manage their high exposure or complex claims.
