The “Adjuster of Choice” to many of the nation’s leading insurance carriers, J.S. White & Associates,Inc., is not a “one size fits all” multi-line firm. An extensive background in investigative work, coupled with a thorough knowledge of the transportation industry, makes us uniquely qualified to deal with the high profile losses associated with the trucking industry. So much so, that a leading transportation insurance carrier honored J. S. White & Associates, Inc. as one of its select few independent adjusters nationwide by granting them draft authority.
We fully understand the nature of Target Risk losses and complex issues of liability. With timely, accurate and detailed handling, we provide our clients with everything from full investigations of multiple fatality accidents to expert cargo handling. Our extensive background in investigative work enables us to be a valued part of the legal defense team, and our long-standing relationships with area law enforcement professionals help us keep the lines of communication open long after the “report has been filed.”
Whether it is boxed beef, frozen pizza, steel or lumber, we know that your client’s cargo not only needs to get to destination on time, but also in the best possible condition. J. S. White & Associates, Inc. has over 25 years of experience with recovery and cargo handling. Our network of qualified vendors allows us to maintain a high recovery rate. And, when salvaging a load is necessary, rest assured that we are constantly updating and reviewing our contacts in the salvage buying industry, always with a keen eye to obtaining the highest bids possible.
"Slip & Fall" and other general liability losses continue to haunt most claims departments. Often legal counsel has completely shut down all contact with the claimant, leaving the carrier with little or no information related to the loss, other than the insured’s sketchy "incident report". J. S. White & Associates, Inc. can fill that gap with detailed photographs and diagrams; documenting witnesses and securing video surveillance tapes and digital recordings, all designed at allowing your company to more accurately evaluate the exposure and properly reserve the file.
Developing subrogation information is often overlooked when confronted with high profile losses, but at J.S. White & Associates, Inc. it is always a key component to any investigation. From witness location and detailed statements to pre-trial preparation, we can provide your company with information simply not available by “phone.” With staff trained in Kinesic Interview Techniques, we have a passion for providing your company with as much available information as possible. Witnesses are often key sources of information, but are too often omitted from “official reports.” From canvassing neighborhoods and interviewing emergency personnel in order to identify and locate potential witnesses to profiling and photographing those witnesses, we go the extra mile for our clients! Just one more reason that J.S. White & Associates, Inc., is recognized as a valued member of the claims team.
Workplace accidents and worker’s compensation related injuries require timely and accurate investigations. In our litigious society, prompt, thorough investigation is the key to understanding one’s exposure and protecting valuable sources of information before plaintiff counsel effectively shuts down the flow of that information. Just one more reason you need J. S. White & Associates, Inc. on your team.
