News from RMI...Settlements on all Subro Fronts!

Quad Pic 2021

  

The first half of 2021 at RMI was highlighted by significant settlements in our property division; continued success, settlements and expansion of our auto division; and a host of recoveries in the RMI health care/workers compensation division.

On the property side, RMI’s time tested formula of immediate scene exams at loss sites continued to yield results in the first half of 2021.  Product liability settlements in the first two quarters involved dehumidifiers, dryers, dishwashers, gas and water hoses and related connections.  Significant six digit settlements were reached in claims involving explosions, electrical fires, and structure collapse cases.  A trend noticed during Covid 19 showed an uptick in rental property cooking fires, and several early resolutions occurred on those losses. 

This past month, RMI partner David Matejczyk and Brian Churchwell of Churchwell Fire Consultants provided a webinar in conjunction with NASP and the IAAI on fires and explosions involving death and serious injuries.    

RMI’s auto division continues to grow, aided by an upgrade in collection software and additional legal assistants joining the firm. The auto division has litigated and recovered on complicated legal issues involving out-of-state policies, under-insured and coverage matters.  On the subrogation auto industry side, RMI’s Amanda Martanovic has again been selected as the Auto Subrogation Track leader for the 2021 National Association of Subrogation Professional’s upcoming 2021 Annual Conference.
