York Insurance Services Group has launched a program to manage construction defect claims for insurance carriers who choose to outsource this specialty and also for self-insured construction contractors. The program is available nationwide.

York’s Construction Defect Claims Practice manages all aspects of construction claims. This hands-on oversight includes: A thorough investigation and documentation of the claim and taking of statements; identification and retention of engineers, architects and other experts; representation of the client in mediation and more.

“It’s a mistake to have less experienced adjusters or generalists handle construction defect claims,” says Clayton Hartley, construction defect practice leader with York. “For these types of claims, there’s a clear reduction in overall cost of loss when specialists manage the claims from the beginning.”
