Risk Management & Prevention

We Take the Guesswork Out Of Risk Management

Risk management is fundamental to a successful business. When mistakes happen and procedures are not followed, a business can suffer tremendous losses or face serious litigation that may have otherwise been avoided if a strong risk management program had been put in place. 

At Wolf & Fox, we understand the importance of establishing risk management and prevention programs that evaluate and forecast potential financial and legal risks our business clients could face.  We analyzes risk to determine where our clients have exposure and how to prevent and/or reduce that exposure. We then offer solutions that help our clients avoid or minimize the impact these issues could have on their business.

We Help to Reduce Liability Exposure

It is important to analyze how a business handles personal injury claims. All too often, businesses immediately turn over a claim to its insurance carrier to provide payment to the claimant. Unfortunately, patrons are aware of this too and often file meritless claims with the understanding that the insurance company will issue a quick settlement check just to make the matter go away. While filing an insurance claim may be the best thing to do in certain circumstances, your business will miss an opportunity to control and manage risk if it does not first properly investigate, document, and analyze the claim.

In helping our clients reduce their exposure to liability from personal injury claims, Wolf & Fox provides education and training regarding best practices for documenting and investigating claims. That training emphasizes the importance of conveying proper concern for the patron, which can often fully resolve claims at that time. Instruction is also given related to how to properly document the alleged incident, including tips for completing incident reports in a manner so that they do not contain any statements that can be construed as an admission of liability or otherwise used against your business. How things are said or written down can often have unintended negative consequences. Focus is also placed on educating our clients as to how to conduct a timely and thorough investigation.

Wolf & Fox is well versed in educating and training businesses how to properly investigate personal injury claims and document the circumstances surrounding the alleged incident without inadvertently exposing the company to liability.
