Is there a better way to set a more accurate case reserve?
The answer is YES:
DART takes the guesswork out of determining liability loss reserves by using hands-on expertise backed by decision analysis. It’s a process first developed and successfully applied in-house at Stanford University Medical Network and is now being offered to you by The Risk Authority.
Most case-reserving strategies look at the big picture and fail to quantify how each specific detail impacts case value. No two cases are alike and case-reserve strategies that are based on historical experience and jury verdicts can miss the mark … badly.
DART is a dependable, consistent approach that will lend confidence to the reserve- setting process. DART accounts for all of the variables as well as how they interact, giving your organization a more accurate reserve and greater peace of mind.
A Delicate Balance:
Over-reserving needlessly restricts limited resources while under-reserving can negatively impact the bottom line of the entire organization. With so much time, money and the health of the self-insurance program at stake, determining the amount held in reserve needs a real solution, not an educated guess.
The DART process casts a wide net to gather all relevant information about your specific case: facts of the case, veracity of witnesses, expert opinions, applicable laws and any other information that may impact the ultimate claim value..
