At Zarwin Baum, we recognize that these types of claims are fraught with deception. Therefore, when warranted, we regularly engage the services of our team of investigators, liability and medical experts, surveillance operators and record review technicians in an attempt to uncover fraud and symptom exaggeration.
Our attorneys fully understand that claims administrators must be well informed about the status of a case to effectively manage the litigation. After case assignment, we quickly develop an extensive case evaluation and budget, gauging the potential damage exposure and cost of litigation. We work closely with the designated claims handler to create an effective and efficient litigation plan and budget targeted to achieve a swift and favorable result. Thereafter, the specifically selected member of this team systematically provides comprehensive updates as the case progresses.
Claim professionals involved in the retail and hospitality practice area are focused more than ever on controlling legal spend.  Understanding these unique business challenges and financial concerns, Zarwin Baum proactively handles retail and hospitality liability matters in the most efficient, cost effective manner in conjunction with the client’s goals. We are committed to a practice group policy that requires immediate case evaluation and settlement efforts, efficient use of attorney time, frequent use of paralegals and when appropriate, aggressive use of mediation and binding Arbitrations. 
We fully understand that “success” is defined by our ability to bring the case to a swift and favorable resolution.  For us, “life of claim” is not amorphous insurance jargon used by our clients, but a concept that we fully understand and target as the measuring stick to evaluate our own in-house performance metrics.  
We pride ourselves in our ability to promptly and efficiently close files. When trial is necessary, our Retail and Hospitality Liability Practice Group is committed to an aggressive, no-holds-barred litigation style designed to place our clients in the best position to obtain a favorable resolution or verdict.
