The June edition of Claims Management Magazine, includes an article titled “Low Hanging Fruit-Executive Perceptions and Strategies on Squeezing the Most Out of Structured Settlements.”  The article was written by Taylor Smith, President CLM Advisors and highlights results from a survey of how senior claims executives perceive the value of structured settlements. The article also focuses attention what senior claims executives believe are the most significant contributions structured settlement consultants bring to the claims negotiation process.  The survey was commissioned by NSSTA.

Caucus Silo Lewis

"Structured settlements have always enjoyed strong bipartisan support in the U.S. Congress because they help ease the pain and suffering that accompany some of the worst tragedies a person can experience.  These settlements allow seriously injured survivors live with dignity and financial independence."

Congressman John Lewis (D-GA)

Co-Chair of the Congressional Structured Settlements Caucus

New CLM Survey

CLM Advisors recently announced the release of a new Industry Study that examines claims professionals’ perceptions, utilization and understanding of structured settlements. The Study, entitled "Delivering High Value Services: Claims Professionals and Structured Settlements" was commissioned by the National Structured Settlements Trade Association (NSSTA). The Study profiles the thoughts and observations of more than 100 claims professionals from a diverse group of property and casualty insurance companies. Topics covered include both the process for obtaining and the value of using structures, and also thoughts about the distinct value of using structured settlement consultants in the claim resolution process. This survey of front line claims professionals follows a March 2014 CLM Advisors’ report, which surveyed senior and chief claim officers on the same topic. This Study’s results were unveiled at the 2014 NSSTA Fall Educational Meeting in La Jolla, CA on October 30, 2014 and are now available to NSSTA Members, by clicking here.
