Second Look Counsel
In complex cases and certain high exposure cases, AEIX may retain the services of attorneys with national trial practices who have significant experience taking catastrophic claims to trial on a frequent basis. These attorneys work with local defense counsel selected by the member to provide additional help in finding experts, participate in mock trials and motions practice, and they may join the defense team to help the member 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 look counsel,” and hire them directly to manage their high exposure or complex claims.
