About Fairview’s Property and Casualty Risk Management Department
Fairview is a third-generation family firm that manages in excess of $300 million in insurance premiums. Our Property and Casualty Risk Management Department is comprised of the following division:
- Public Sector Risk Management Division
Today, we proudly represent over 30 public entity clients that are serviced by dedicated professionals.
As risk managers, we help protect your people, property, reduce your liability and look to reduce your total cost of risk.
At Fairview Insurance, we pride ourselves on our Risk Management Services and our abilities to
properly insure the Public Entity. Through a series Risk Management controls we work
proactively to ensure that the entity is properly covered; working as safely as possible and costs
are kept to a minimum. It is important to note that all of Fairview Insurance Agency’s services are tailored to fit each of our client’s needs.
An example of our professional services includes:
Claims Management – Although there is no way to predict the severity of a claim or eliminate claims entirely, there are a number of action items that the entity and risk manager can work on jointly to keep these claims to a minimum.
Administrative Assistance – Fairview Insurance works to reduce the insurance related administrative burden from Public Entity employees.
Renewal Policies – Conduct a renewal meeting to determine your exposures for the
coming policy year and create an annual report.
Transfer of Liability – Fairview Insurance understands the crucial element of transferring liabilities away from the public entity, specifically with contractors. We will recommend and apply the necessary Risk Management principles (referenced below) in order to secure proper levels of insurance, with the ultimate goal of transferring risk away and onto the contractors’ insurance policies.
Customized Cost Solution – We understand that every risk is unique. We keep this in mind when re-marketing your insurance coverages to various markets. This guarantees that the most comprehensive and competitive programs are in place.
