Also, in 1994, Stockwell, Sievert established a Special Investigations Unit in response to a need for specialization and accessibility in the insurance claims business. In successful insurance claims investigations, networking and the ability to act quickly to obtain the necessary information are paramount. By focusing our attention on specific seminars and training schools, we were able to develop investigative skills in a select group of attorneys which complements their legal expertise.
This team of investigators has broadened the firm’s base of clients by handling their S.I.U. business, while creating a network of information concerning past and present claims and repeat offenders.
By developing the Special Investigations Unit, we are able to provide trained, experienced investigators who will be available for the immediate scheduling of Examinations Under Oath, as well as the immediate canvassing of fire and theft scenes. These attorneys ask the right questions and develop the appropriate evidence to protect the insurer from potentially fraudulent claims.
