OUM Chiropractor Program Claim Mission

To promptly, fairly and efficiently defend and resolve the claims brought against our policyholders.

OUM Chiropractor Program Claim Philosophy

The expeditious settlement of meritorious claims and aggressive defense of those without merit is the guiding principal of OUM's claim philosophy. We facilitate this by

  1. Early identification of liability, or lack of merit;
  2. Establishing damage information sooner rather than later;
  3. Moving toward early disposition of non-meritorious claims by motion, voluntary dismissal or other means of dispute resolution;
  4. Use of jury trial for those cases evaluated as being defensible;
  5. Proactively offering a fair settlement in meritorious claims; and
  6. Vigorously resisting payment of indemnity solely for economic reasons.
