Overview

Reminger maintains a strong tradition of providing high quality and reasonably priced services in defending general casualty lawsuits including automobile liability, premises liability and other related matters through personal and commercial lines insurance carriers and excess and surplus carriers.

We also have a specific expertise in defending claims against retailers, restaurants, amusement and recreational facilities, and other places of public accommodation.

Our attorneys are also members of Defense Research Institute and the Ohio Association of Civil Trial Attorneys. Our attorneys are frequent speakers at client and peer seminars and are published in professional journals on topics affecting the insurance industry.

An innovative and unique aspect of this practice group is its familiarity and interaction with other practice areas that clients with general casualty exposure also have: commercial premises liability, transportation, employment and excess and surplus. Therefore, several members of this group are member of other relevant groups because of the cross training important to our general casualty clients.

Our Service

Our group distinguishes itself from our competition in the following ways:

  1. Dedicated client service. Our Practice Protocol™ requires our attorneys to contact the insured immediately upon receipt of an assignment. Thereafter, upon the receipt and review of the investigation file, our attorneys schedule a meeting with the client for the purpose of confirming the facts and evaluating the client as a witness. Within 30 days, we provide an initial, analytical report, litigation plan and projected budget. This group also provides claims investigation prior to the filing of a lawsuit.
  2. Philosophy of Practice. Reminger General Casualty Insurance Group attorneys are trial lawyers, rather than 'litigators.' Therefore, we gather the initial facts and collaborate a course of action with the client. We are then proactive in resolving the matter in the least amount of time and at the least expense and the most favorable terms to the client.
  3. We are a good value. Our firm is a pioneer in 'alternative fee' arrangements with clients. If a client chooses to be charged by the hour, our rate is a 'net rate' inclusive of all in-house and out-of-pocket expenses. Consequently, there are no extra charges for long distance telephone, mailings, mileage, computer usage research charges, fax, copies, etc. We use a blended hourly rate applicable to all handling attorneys. The firm and this group is available to enter into alternative hourly rate applicable to all handling attorneys. The firm and this group is available to enter into alternative fee agreements such as a flat fee per case, phase billing or reverse contingency arrangements.
  4. Value-added components. Our General Casualty Insurance Group members are available for complimentary consultation with both insureds and claim representatives for advice and counsel in areas of loss prevention, claims investigation, case evaluation, substantive law, expert retention, claim management and coverage issues. Our attorneys are available to assist clients in marketing presentations to professional groups and associates. We are able to conduct interviews, discovery and presentations in the most cost effective and efficient manner.
  5. Access to the Medical Community. The firm represents more hospitals, doctors and their insurers than any other firm in Ohio. Consequently, we have tremendous access to the medical community when it is necessary to have hospital and medical records analyzed or in the scheduling of an independent medical examination. Our attorneys are also well versed in the medical areas as some attorneys also practice in the medical malpractice area. The firm also employs over a dozen nurse paralegals.
  6. Alternative Dispute Resolution. It has been the firm's experience in defending general liability claims with all types of exposure that often it is in the client's best interest to resolve them at the earliest opportunity. Consequently, we encourage early evaluation with any eye toward mediation and various forms of arbitration to reduce legal expenses for our clients.
  7. Regional Coverage. With offices throughout the states of Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana, our lawyers are members of the legal communities where the insureds' risks arise. Thus, we can thoughtfully and cost-efficiently protect the interests of the insureds and resolve claims expeditiously. We also have lawyers licensed in all contiguous states for complete regional coverage.
