Litigation Support/Expert Witness

As property/casualty insurance and financial litigation continues to grow in complexity, it is essential that you have independent, credible and expert actuaries who can explain actuarial matters clearly and effectively.

From routine business support to complex litigation, you need independent actuaries you can trust and understand. Coupled with a solid reputation for credibility, we have extensive experience handling new license applications, complex litigation, class actions, arbitration, administrative hearings and other contractual disputes.

As well, we are seasoned actuarial litigation experts who can support your efforts to make your case as strong as possible through expert testimony where needed. To help you build a better case, we will successfully sort through challenging issues and finer details to identify key arguments, create resolution scenarios and assess financial damage.

Our actuarial litigation support team has extensive experience supporting insurer in-house legal staff for law firms and their clients, as well as presenting testimony before legislative bodies, administrative rate hearings, special panels and federal, state and county courts.

Contractor's Liability

Pinnacle was asked to provide a legislative costing analysis and expert testimony regarding proposed legislation that would substantially expand coverage for construction defects in Oregon. Pinnacle’s study and testimony focused not only on the current conditions of the contractors’ liability insurance market compared to other states, but also the historical changes seen when other states made similar changes. Our analysis also focused on the relationship between home warranties and commercial general liability insurance policies and how these risk mitigation techniques differ over time after a home is completed.

Workers' Compensation

Pinnacle was retained by a major national political organization to investigate the impact of several workers compensation reforms including: implementation of mandatory managed care, privatization of state workers compensation insurance funds and the permitting of private insurers to enter previously monopolistic workers compensation states. Our analysis looked at state-level differences in rate levels, insurer experience, coverage competition, the mix of medical and indemnity claims and numerous other metrics. The study was extremely well received and ultimately presented to more than half of the nation’s governors.
