The Last Mile (Problem and Solution) Article
“In my travels as a researcher, I visited an innovative insurance defense firm that was specifically created to implement processes, technologies and staffing systems to drive down both legal costs and speed up cycle time (closing files in an average of 300 days rather than 500). The firm has been able to show that as the time and cost to litigate go down, the amount paid to plaintiffs in settlements and judgments is not going up. This is a big net saving for the insurance companies.”
